“Powerful: Bill Monroe Remembered” to Premiere Tonight on KET

KET, Les Leverett

– by Chris Langdon, International Bluegrass Museum Promotions Director

June is a very busy month for bluegrass music in Owensboro. Down at the International Bluegrass Music Museum we are working hard to make ROMP amazing. We are putting together a party to celebrate not only where bluegrass music has been, but where it is going. However, it is the roots that keep us strong. The roots are why we are here.

In that spirit, we have partnered with Kentucky Educational Television (KET) to present Powerful: Bill Monroe Remembered throughout the month of June. The film, created by filmmaker Joe Gray and produced by the IBMM, tells the story of Bill Monroe and his career as told by the members of his band, The Bluegrass Boys, over 6 decades.  Monroe, an Ohio County native, is known as the Father of Bluegrass Music.

The film will premiere on KET on June 10 at 8:00 PM CST. There will be additional showings throughout the month. The film will also be shown at the museum during ROMP.  We hope your whole family will join us for this special viewing experience!
