Sean is located in Owensboro, KY, which long time grassers will recognize as the birthplace of the International Bluegrass Music Association. The organization was initially chartered there, and the city remains the home of the International Bluegrass Music Museum and the ROMP (River of Music Party) festival held each June.
The region is also currently at work on a $10 million fundraising effort to build the new International Bluegrass Music Center, which will triple the space currently available at the Museum. The City of Owensboro has committed $3 million towards this ambitious project if the IBMM can raise the other $7 million.
Prior to joining Bluegrass Today, Sean worked as the Tourism Development Director for Daviess County Kentucky, and before that as an Account Executive with the Owensboro Messenger Inquirer. Sean also served in the military for several years before going into marketing.
At the same time as we welcome Sean, we note the departure of Mark “Woody” Edwards, who had been part of our sales and marketing team from the day we launched. He will be missed by everyone at Bluegrass Today, and by our many clients to whom he had become a friend. Woody is seeking a new path, and we wish him well struggling to endure the hardships of living a block from the ocean on North Carolina’s Outer Banks.
Sean can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
