Bluegrass Music Hall To Open In April
James Monroe, a veteran entertainer based in Nashville, will open a 700-seat music hall and RV campground in Franklin, Kentucky. Monroe was inspired by his father, Bill Monroe, the acknowledged “Father of Bluegrass Music,” to create a haven for music lovers and outdoorsmen alike. The James Monroe Bluegrass Music Hall is expected to be completed and ready for patrons in early April of 2006.
In honor of the grand opening, Monroe will host the Kentucky Springtime Bluegrass Special, April 19-22, 2006. The celebrations begins Wednesday, April 19 with The Hatfield Band and Logan County Grass scheduled to perform and continues on Thursday, April 20 with performances by Larry Sparks, Leroy Troy, Primitive Quartet, and Ronnie Stoneman. On Friday, April 21, Dean Osborne, the Fritts Family, Lawrence Bishop, and Mac Wiseman are scheduled to perform and Gary Brewer, The Grascals, and Bobby Osborne will close weekends’ festivities on Saturday, April 22.
James Monroe played with Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys for seven years before forming his own band, James Monroe and the Midnight Ramblers. His band has since toured the United States. The Midnight Ramblers will perform on a weekly basis at the Music Hall in conjunction with the Music Hall’s house band.
Confirmed performances for this summer include Jack Greene and Jimmy C. Newman at the Country Music Package Show; John Anderson, Mel McDaniel, Jessee McReynolds, Jean Shepard and James Monroe at the Country Bluegrass Event and Country Music Hall of Famer Ray Price will be featured at The Legend Show.
The Bill Monroe Memorial Birthday Celebration featuring Bobby Bare, David Davis, Jim Monroe, Bobby Osborne, Billy Walker and James Monroe and the Midnight Ramblers will be held September 14-16. Future appearances include: John Conlee, David Davis, Jim Monroe, Stella Parton, Diane Sherrill, Gene Watson, and Leona Williams.
