Father of Bluegrass Day weekend on Sirius

Sirius satellite Radio - Bluegrass Channel 65What better way for a bluegrass fan to celebrate Father’s Day than with the music of the Father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe?

That’s exactly what the folks at Sirius Satellite radio’s bluegrass channel (65) think. They will feature wall-to-wall Monroe music from Saturday (6/16) at 9:00 a.m. until Sunday (6/17) at 9:00 p.m. Both his own recordings, and other artists’ interpretations of the music of Bill Monroe will be included, along with background and commentary from the channels hosts, Chris Jones and Ned Luberecki.

As they say on their site:

No Bill, No Bluegrass. Know Bill, Know Bluegrass!
