All Ages Welcome

Join us for the program "A History of Bluegrass Music" - from Bill Monroe’s 1st spot on the Grand Old Opry in 1939, up through Flatt and Scruggs, Jimmy Martin, and The Stanley Bros. Jim and Jesse, Mac Wiseman, J.D. Crowe and many other pioneers are given a tip of the Stetson. Using guitar, mandolin, banjo and vocals the audiences come away with a deeper understanding of America’s bluegrass music.

Formed in 1985, The Muleskinner Band's first performance was at Market Place ‘85 in Urbana, Ohio. Since then, the band has traveled to 5 different states, including West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and extensively throughout Ohio. Strong vocals, slick instrumentation and light-hearted interaction with their audiences make them crowd favorites. They have recorded 6 projects and each of the members has been asked to guest on other recordings.
