Out Now: First Issue of Bluegrass Unlimited Produced by the HOF!
In August of this year, the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum acquired Bluegrass Unlimited with plans to roll out its first issue at the helm in November. The transition has been an exciting journey, and we’re thrilled to unveil our first cover!
In addition to the annual Talent Directory, this month’s issue features articles with cover artist Becky Buller, Tim Stafford, and Lindsay Lou. Also included, we take a look at the newest inductees into the Hall of Fame: New Grass Revival, The Johnson Mountain Bo
The Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum is now publishing bluegrass music’s “most important publication”.
The first issue published under the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum banner arrived in November. To guide the process, Dan Miller has been named editor of Bluegrass Unlimited. Miller hit the ground running establishing the editorial calendar, working with columnists and other writers, providing input to the design and layout team, and supporting sales efforts.
The work of the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum is intended to inspire current and future generations of bluegrass artists and fans to engage with the music. Bluegrass Unlimited is one of the important tools we will use to encourage that engagement. Bluegrass music has a permanent address at 311 West 2nd Street, Owensboro, KY, and we are excited to welcome Bluegrass Unlimited to its new home. To subscribe, click here.
“Will the circle be unbroken?…By and By, Lord By and By”
I think we can all find a bluegrass music lyric that speaks to us during the good times and the bad times! This my friends, unfortunately, is a tough time with each and everyone of us being affected. We have been thinking about you– bluegrass fans, artists, musicians, partners, members and friends—praying for your health and safety through this difficult time.
COVID-19 has had a signficant impact on the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum. Closing our doors mid-March due to the pandemic, concerts and events were cancelled, staff furloughed and revenue has been nearly non-existent. People cannot travel to us due to federal, state and local public health strategies aimed at reducing the spread of disease. But, you cannot stop the music! We reopened in June and quickly became more adept at communicating virtually, recording the Saturday Lessons Program, virtual museum tours, etc. While we miss seeing you in person, we are doing all we can to expedite a virtual bluegrass music experience. Check out our website at bluegrasshall.org to see our offerings! We miss you and look forward to seeing you again…by and by!
