Bluegrass Now comes to the Bluegrass Hall of Fame

Bluegrass music is heading for a special night at the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Owensboro, KY.

Bluegrass Now is taping an all-star cast next month in anticipation of airing it on PBS, February 29, 2020.

The taping, taking place at 7:00 p.m. on December 19, will feature one artist already in the Hall of Fame, Larry Sparks, and a half-dozen who seem likely to join him someday – Michael Cleveland, Missy Raines, Dan Tyminski, Alison Brown, and hosts Rhonda Vincent and Jim Lauderdale.

If that’s not enough to make bluegrass fans salivate, a trio of relative newcomers who are racking up awards and could wind up there someday, round out the bill: Becky Buller, Frank Solivan, and Molly Tuttle.

“This feels like a homecoming, as many of today’s most prominent bluegrass artists make a pilgrimage back to the source of the music to document their own musical journeys,” said Chris Joslin, executive director of the hall of fame and museum.
