The International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro, KY is offering a special bonus for anyone enrolling or renewing a membership during 2006. It’s a 90 minute DVD of the Legends Concert at their River Of Music Party in 2005. It features performances by Josh Graves, Kenny Baker, Wade & Julia Mainer, Jesse McReynolds, Curly Seckler, Tom Gray, Allen Shelton, Tony Ellis, Gerald McCormick, and Les Woodie, as well as candid footage of rehearsals, back stage conversations, and a group discussion forum.
The offer expires on December 31, and the Museum wants to remind everyone of this opportunity to support their work by joining (or renewing), and perhaps get a nice gift for someone who would enjoy this look at some of the true legends of our music.
You can join or renew on the Museum web site.
The IBMM has also recently become involved in a program called Shop For Museums, which donates a portion of items you purchase online to the museum of your choice. To support them with your holiday shopping, simply visit the Shop For Museum’s IBMM page, and select IBMM as your museum partner.
You can then make purchases from retailers like Barnes & Noble, Hickory Farms and CompUSA as well as eBay, iTunes, Amazon.com and many others. You can visit the Shop For Museums site when you anticipate making an online purchase, and search for the store you expect to patronize to see if a portion of your purchase can be donated to the IBMM.
