Bluegrass Festival Honors Monroe's 100th

The Vine Grove Bluegrass Festival honors a legend of the genre this week. The 12th annual festival, which runs from Thursday through Saturday, takes place the week after the 100th birthday of Bill Monroe. Monroe is credited with creating the style of music that came to be known as bluegrass after the band he was part of, “Blue Grass Boys.” He hails from Ohio County.
