Pioneers of Bluegrass Honored in Kentucky

July 29, 2008

The International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro, Kentucky has honored 64 bluegrass legends during the museum's "ROMP, the River of Music Party." The event, which involved introducing the musicians onstage, evolved (as might be expected) into a jam session after a round of storytelling and reminiscing. The musicians attending the festivities were: Eddie & Martha Adcock, Homer Bailes, Kenny Baker, Lloyd Bell, Gloria Belle, Bud Brewster, Carlos Brock, Jimmy Case, Gene Christian, Bill Church, Jimmy Cox, Noah Crase, J.D. Crowe, Doug Dillard, Rodney Dillard, Ward Eller, Tony Ellis, Bill Emerson, Tom Ewing, Ernest Ferguson, Connie Gately, Bill Grant, Al Hawkes, Bobby Hicks, Jerry Holt, Tom Holt, Ramona Jones, Pete Kuykendall, Katie Laur, Lance LeRoy, the Lewis Family, Tex Logan, Rose Lee Maphis, Mac Martin, Gerald McCormick, Haskel McCormick, William McReynolds, Bob Moore, Bonnie Lou Moore, Tom Morgan, Dewey Murphy, John Murphy, Bobby Osborne, Sonny Osborne, Hisashi Ozaki, Yasushi Ozaki, Carl Pagter, Bud Reed, David Reed, Ralph Reed, Tommy Scott, Curly Seckler, Jim Smoak, Roni Stoneman, Margie & Enoch Sullivan, Arnold Terry, Bill Thomas, Roland "Smokey Val" Valliere, Roland White and Paul Williams.
