The Bluegrass Hotel Project which has made headlines on bluegrass networks across the globe has the following message displayed on their website this week:
Due to recent issues involving filming schedules, and a high risk assessment of civil disorder at the venue caused by some fans upset that Sam Bush removed himself from the line-up, The Bluegrass Hotel concert & festival is being re-scheduled for a fall 2009 concert to coincide with the broadcast of the film on PBS Television and the release of a DVD and Coffee Table Book at retail locations.
The Bluegrass Hotel project will be making an announcement soon regarding the re-scheduled date, which will feature a talent line-up of Newgrass era stars and artists.Â This concert will be free of charge for all the fans, and promises to be a once in a lifetime event, with special incentives. The Bluegrass Hotel is a Film and DVD project about the Newgrass music era of the 1970s in Kentucky, featuring original members of The Bluegrass Alliance and other bands from Louisville.
A segment of the Project involved a March 20 benefit concert for the American Cancer Society at the Galt House Hotel & Suites.
The Producers and the participating Newgrass era artists have been working on this Project since 2008, starting with a launch announcement event at the IBMA Convention in Nashville, and a major segment of filming and production with all of the artists in Kentucky last December.
