GOODBYE OLD PAL

Bill Monroe

Tom Keith

It's a weekend for remembrances this Saturday, as we head to Murray, Kentucky and the CFSB Center on the campus of Murray State University to recall the life and music of the Great Grandfather of Bluegrass music, Bill Monroe. An impressive line-up of Bill's musical colleagues and friends joins us, including "Blue Grass Boys" alumni: fiddler Bob Black, singer-guitarist Tom Ewing, bassist Mark Hembree, fiddler Bobby Hicks, singer-guitarist Peter Rowan, mandolinist Roland White, and banjo player Blake Williams. Also joining in the celebration, fiddler Stuart Duncan and singer Kathy Chiavola along with our own Rich Dworsky and Pat Donohue. Plus, a few kind words for our dear friend and colleague Tom Keith.
