Located on the riverfront in downtown Owensboro, the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum is a state-of-the-art institution which shines a light on the cultural music of Kentucky…bluegrass. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of a genre which was built on the foundations of gospel, jazz, and blues by the Father of Bluegrass Music, Bill Monroe. A Kentucky native from neighboring Ohio County, Monroe cultivated bluegrass music as a sound built on rhythm and harmonies. The Hall of Fame tells the story of the greats who played the music, including Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, and more and continues the story to present day leaders in the genre. From Alison Krauss and Kentucky greats Ricky Skaggs and Sam Bush, to those who’ve taken bluegrass music to further heights, the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum invites visitors to interact with history through exhibitions and live music in its 450-seat theatre.
