The International Bluegrass Music Museum, in Owensboro, KY, has recently announced a new initiative to increase awareness and participation in Museum events and news among local bluegrass associations around the country. The new program is being billed as the Bluegrass Museum Ambassadors Program.
To participate, a local association needs to elect a member, preferably one who is enthusiastic about the IBMM, to serve as an Ambassador.
This Museum Ambassador will work with the Bluegrass Museum on special projects, report news and information for our newsletter, report Museum news back to your association for members and newsletters, encourage Museum membership and donations, encourage donation of bluegrass artifacts to the Museum, and attend a yearly meeting of Ambassadors at ROMP in Owensboro each year.
Ambassadors will be given a complimentary membership to the museum, a VIP pass (including VIP access to all events, backstage privileges, meals with Artists/Pioneers) to the museum’s annual festival, ROMP, and an Ambassadors t-shirt. In addition, the museum will allow Ambassadors access to the artist lodging rates during the ROMP festival.
The association needs to elect their Ambassador and send the following information to the museum.
T-shirt size: S M L XL 2XL
You can e-mail the info to museum director Gabrielle Gray, or send a hard copy via postal mail to the following address.
