Further to our recent report regarding Curly Seckler’s appearance at the Ford Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum this Saturday, December 4, we have learned that the program is to be streamed live on the Country Music Hall of Fame web site.
So anyone who can’t make it to Nashville can still watch the program live. It takes place at 1:30 p.m. (EST).
This show is to celebrate Seckler’s 75th anniversary in the music business, and his upcoming 91st birthday on Christmas day. It will include both a performance from the bluegrass legend, and an interview about his long career in music.
What a marvel that a man who started in the business before the advent of television can now be seen live on video all across the globe.
A two-time Editor of British Bluegrass News, he has been seriously interested in bluegrass music since about 1970. As well as contributing to that magazine, he has, in the past 30 plus years, had articles published by Country Music World, International Country Music News, Country Music People, Bluegrass Unlimited, MoonShiner (the Japanese bluegrass music journal) and Bluegrass Europe.
He wrote the annotated series I'm On My Way Back To Old Kentucky, a daily memorial to Bill Monroe that culminated with an acknowledgement of what would have been his 100th birthday, on September 13, 2011.
