In coordination with Volunteer Owensboro, The International Bluegrass Music Museum is launching its newest program, The Bluegrass Band Project. The objective is to bring together local musicians, learn specific bluegrass songs in a group setting, learn the fundamentals of playing music as part of a band, and finally putting people together into smaller groups as a basis for creating a band.
As we anticipate the excitement of the new year, I immediately think about all that is in store for the International Bluegrass Music Museum and our new home currently under construction in downtown Owensboro. Unless you drive by the construction site everyday like I do, you may not have a sense of the dream that is quickly becoming a reality.
The International Bluegrass Music Museum presents A Decade of Dailey & Vincent: An American Music Journey, featuring artifacts and memorabilia from the Grammy nominated artists. Opening January 13, 2017 with a pre-show reception and concert, this will be the final exhibit at the Museum’s current location.
You are invited to take your seat as a seat donor. Your gift will allow you to become a permanent part of the 450 seat theater in the International Bluegrass Music Center. Your name – or the name of a group, organization or loved one you choose to honor – will be engraved on a permanent brass plate on a theater seat. Click here for more information.
