Bluegrass Music Museum Fall Benefit Concert Series Kicks Off September 9th [VIDEO]
It's back! The International Bluegrass Music Museum's benefit concert series will continue this fall with seven performances scheduled September through December.
The concert series is hosted at the museum in downtown Owensboro and it features nationally recognized artists from all over the country. Kicking off the series on Friday, September 9th is a ROMP festival fan favorite, Wood & Wire. This Austin, TX-based group has played the Austin City Limits Music Festival, the IBMA World of Bluegrass, and the the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Here's a performance from the SXSW festival held earlier this year.
Season passes for the entire series can be purchased HERE. Individual show tickets will be available in the coming weeks. All shows will begin at 7:00 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. The money raised from the concert series will help the museum continue efforts to preserve and to honor the legacy of bluegrass music, educational programs, general museum operating expenses, the Video Oral History Program (VOHP), and artifact collection. Future performance artists and dates include:
Front Country- Thursday, September 15th
Tim O'Brien- Friday, October 7th
The Honeycutters- Thursday, October 27th
