The Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum is set to present the Bluegrass Assemblies program in local elementary (primary) schools. The program will feature The Price Sisters with Randy Lanham. As part of the Bluegrass in the Schools (BITS) initiative, the assemblies are presented to further the Hall of Fame’s mission of education in bluegrass music.
Funding for the assemblies comes in part via grants received from the Michael E. Horn Family Foundation and the Lester E. Yeager Charitable Trust.
The Price Sisters, featuring Lauren and Leanna, are Ohio natives who recently signed with Rebel Records. With their latest release, A Heart Never Knows, The Price Sisters have generated an exciting buzz within the traditional music community by presenting their own unique interpretation of the ancient tones set forth by Bill Monroe. Accompanied by the Hall of Fame’s education director Randy Lanham and Kristy Westerfield, the group is set to perform for all elementary students in Daviess County, in both public and private school systems. The group’s goal is to educate children about the history of bluegrass music and to encourage budding musicians to enroll in the Saturday Lesson Program.
The Hall of Fame’s Saturday Lesson Program begins February 9th. Working with the previously mentioned granting agencies, the Hall of Fame offers music lessons at an affordable rate, which includes an instrument on loan while enrolled in the program. Registration also includes a t-shirt and the opportunity to perform on the main stage at ROMP Festival in June. The fee for the entire session of Saturday Lessons is $90, and $50 for each additional family member. Parents are encouraged to take lessons along with their children. Lessons are available to anyone age six to adult, no previous skills required.
