Take a Virtual Tour of the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum

Due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum has been closed to the public for over a month.  In an effort to continue reaching bluegrass fans all over the world, the Hall of Fame has produced a virtual tour led by Executive Director Chris Joslin.
Within the Hall of Fame, several core exhibits explore a chronological history of bluegrass music.  From the early sources to contemporary interpretations, the exhibits tell the story of bluegrass music via documentary-style films, artifacts, images, and hands-on experiences with bluegrass instruments.  Joslin takes virtual visitors through each area commenting on the exhibits and concluding each area with a live performance of a song that was significant to that specific era.

“Until you can travel to the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum, we will bring it to you,” Joslin said. “The virtual tour is a great introduction, but I can’t wait for you to see the Hall of Fame in person and to experience the energy around the music first-hand.  What Bill Monroe created is now enjoyed around the world, and Owensboro, Kentucky is at the headwaters of this uniquely American genre of music.”
