The International Bluegrass Music Museum’s benefit concert series will continue Wednesday May 6, with incendiary American roots duo, Billy Strings and Don Julin.
Doors will open at 6:30 pm with the show beginning at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased online – www.bluegrassmuseum.org – or by calling the Museum 270-926-7891.
The performance will be a great precursor to ROMP this June, as the duo is scheduled to perform at the festival on Saturday afternoon.
With just two instruments – guitar and mandolin – and one voice, Strings and Julin have been tearing up stages across America and generating huge buzz based on their intense live shows. Their music taps into the vein of the earliest bluegrass music on their new album, Fiddle Tune X, back when bluegrass was a rough-and-tumble art form pouring out of the Appalachian mountains, made with great virtuosity and huge attitude.
Monies raised from this concert series help the museum continue their efforts to preserve and honor the legacy of bluegrass music including music educational programs, general museum operating expenses, the Video Oral History Project (VOHP) and artifact collection efforts.
