A year of Bill Monroe – Thanks Richard!

Over the past year, while celebrating the Bill Monroe Centennial, we have enjoyed Richard F. Thompson’s daily posts chronicling important career milestones regarding Big Mon and his many Blue Grass Boys.

Richard chose to entitle his series I’m Going Back To Old Kentucky, a nod to one of Bill’s popular numbers, and his final resting place in Rosine. Each installment noted recordings, releases, births and deaths that occurred on that date through the years.

You can read all of Richard’s pieces by following this link.

Very special thanks from Bluegrass Today to Richard Thompson for his yeoman’s work in assembling all this infomation!
