California-based bluegrass bandleader and songwriter Kathy Kallick has launched a fundraiser in conjunction with County Sales, which will benefit the IBMA Foundation’s Arnold Shultz Fund. The Shultz Fund was created in June 2020, to encourage more participation in bluegrass music by people of color. Twenty-five percent of proceeds from the sale of 12 of her album titles will be donated to the Arnold Shultz Fund. For more info, go to or
