How much memorabilia would a prominent bluegrass promoter and talent agent accumulate in a lifetime? If you live near Nashville you have a chance to find out this week when Lance LeRoy holds a moving sale.
LeRoy is the founder of the Lancer Agency, and managed Lester Flatt from the time he split with Earl Scruggs until he died. At various times Lance also worked with Jimmy Martin, The Johnson Mountain Boys, The Bluegrass Cardinals and Del McCoury. He was deeply involved with the formation of the International Bluegrass Music Association, and is a member of the organization’s Hall of Fame.
Lance and his wife Myrtle recently moved from their long-time home in Hendersonville to live with their son in Mt. Juliet, and a great many items of potential interest to grassers will be offered through an estate sale company this week.
Starting tomorrow, July 31, through Saturday, August 2, items can be seen and purchased in the LeRoy’s former home. These include posters, vinyl recordings, photographs, and various mementos of Lance’s many years in the music business.
The home will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.
