Katy Daley at ROMP

Katy Daley and Roland White at ROMP 2009Our good buddy, Katy Daley from WAMU’s Bluegrass Country, spent much of last week at the River Of Music Party, more commonly known as ROMP, in Owensboro, KY. It’s a 4 day festival put on by the International Bluegrass Museum which always makes recognition of the pioneers of our music a part of their stage schedule.

Katy not only served as an emcee, but also kept up a regular blog on the WAMU’s MySpace page throughout the week. She has photos and a running commentary of the week’s events.

She also was on the job getting signatures on petitions for the Bill Monroe US Postal Stamp campaign. The goal of the campaign is to convince the United States Postal Service to honor Bill Monroe with his own stamp in 2011, which would have been his 100th birthday.

Katy sent along these photos of prominent grassers endorsing the Monroe stamp campaign at ROMP.
