Roanoke Bluegrass Weekend Scholarship recipients announced

The recipients of the 2005 Gibson/Roanoke Bluegrass Weekend Scholarships have been announced. This program awards tuition, room and board, and some travel expenses to exceptional young bluegrass musicians (13-24) allowing them to attend the Roanoke Bluegrass Weekend and study with some of the top professionals in the business.

Three scholarships were awarded this year, along with three alternates should one of the recipients be unable to attend. The scholarships are funded through the generosity of Gibson Original Acoustic Instruments, who donates an instrument to be offered in a raffle, with all proceeds going into the RBW Scholarship Fund.
