Read it here.

This year's multiple winners are Jake Blount, Catherine “BB” Bowness, Matthew Davis, Gerry O’Connor, and Buddy Wachter.

Worth noting that two of the five are four-string players.

Today's announcement also said that instead of $50,000, future awards will be $25,000 to one or more recipients.

Edited to add (from the link):

Each of the winners will perform Wednesday in the latest installment of the FreshGrass Festival’s virtual #FreshStreams, introduced by Steve Martin. The #FreshStream is viewable here starting at 8 p.m. ET and will also include performances from Chris Thile, Dom Flemons, and Alison Brown with the Kronos Quartet.
