Monroe Opens Bluegrass Museum

James Monroe, son of late bluegrass great Bill Monroe, was to cut the ribbon Thursday (April 11) opening the International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro, Ky. “The site of this new museum in Kentucky, where it all started, would have meant the world to him,” Monroe said in a prepared statement. “It’s a real tribute to the man and his music.” 04/10/02
