The International Bluegrass Music Museum will showcase a traveling exhibit featuring several rare artifacts during the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass next week in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Artifacts featured will include an autographed fox horn once owned by Bill Monroe, a patent leather shoe worn by Mac Wiseman, and numerous artifacts from Carlton Haney’s Fincastle Festival.
Attendees will have the opportunity to view clips of interviews with Carlton Haney, Larry Sparks and Bill Keith, to name a few, during a short video promoting one of the Museum’s flagship programs, the Video Oral History Project (VOHP).
The VOHP began in 2002, when the Museum undertook the ambitious task of interviewing and filming first and second-generation bluegrass musicians. Since then the Museum has interviewed well over 150 musicians.
Exhibit booths will be open for attendees Wednesday and Thursday from 1:00 until 5:00 pm and Friday and Saturday from 11:00 am until 6:00 pm. IBMM will be located at booth 408.
