Friday night Bluegrass in Rosine, KY
One of the best cultural gems the state of Kentucky has to offer is hands down bluegrass music. If you want true, unadulterated bluegrass, the best place to hear that is Friday nights at "the barn". Meg and I have made the trek down to Rosine several times and have hardly ever left disappointed. Each time we're treated to excellent music from groups who live for Friday night in the barn each week. Some of the groups have been locals... others make a pilgramage to the birthplace of the genre for a shot at playing in the Mecca of the music. It was a rare treat to hear one of Bill Monroe's 'Bluegrass Boys' perform with a young group named the Logan County Ramblers. They lit up the stage with their fast pickin' and great harmony.
If you get a chance to take the trip down the 'Blue Moon' highway I recommend it. If it's a nice evening, roll the windows down on the drive. You'll know when you're getting close to Rosine... just listen for the bluegrass.
