Monroe’s Mandolin Rests in Hall of Fame

The Country Music Hall Of Fame is now the resting place of Bill Monroe’s mandolin. Yesterday the Museum held a ceremony in it’s own Ford Theater on the 94th anniversary of Monroe’s birth. Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder were on hand and Skaggs played the Big Mon’s instrument publicly for the first time since Monroe’s final performance on the Grand Ole Opry nine years ago.

Articles abound about this subject but I’ll simply refer you to the Hall of Fame as that is the best article I’ve read thus far.
