Bill Monroe, the father of bluegrass, made the mandolin the centerpiece of one of America’s most popular musical genres, so popular that many think the instrument came from the southern hills his music celebrated. Actually, it evolved from the lute family in Italy during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries where it was a classical musical instrument. If you haven’t heard the classical mandolin you owe it to yourself to experience the mind-bending talent of our guest musician, a world-renowned mandolin virtuoso, who will be performing at the Carolina Music Museum Thursday, April 11, at 7:30 PM. Oddly, our first reservation came from a Bill Monroe. Do you think? No, that’s impossible!
