(Bill Monroe: The Life & Music of the Blue Grass Man).
5:30 PM – “The Bill Monroe Legacy,” featuring stories about Bill Monroe by the artists.


Bill Monroe, the revered Father of Bluegrass, considered his Blue Grass Boys band a training ground for musicians, and the lengthy list of the artists who performed in it comprises a Who’s Who of bluegrass musicians.  This concert brings together five of the musicians who shared the road and the stage with Monroe for a celebration of his enduring body of music.  Banjoist Butch Robins, fiddler Billy Baker, and bassist Doug Hutchens hail from Southwest Virginia. They will be joined by Ohio guitarist Tom Ewing, and mandolinist Mike Compton of the Nashville Bluegrass Band, whose intimate understanding of the Monroe style completes the ensemble.

The Crooked Road’s Mountains of Music Homecoming is made possible by the support of the Appalachian Regional Commission, Food City, National Endowment for the Arts, Virginia Department of Housing & Economic Development, Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission, Virginia Tourism Corporation, Blue Ridge Beverage, Virginia State Parks, and the Virginia Commission for the Arts.
