The Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Owensboro, Kentucky has announced that Sam Bush will perform for its opening weekend in October. 

The mandolin player performed this past weekend in Owensboro at ROMP Fest, which is hosted by the museum.

Museum Executive Director Chris Joslin said in a press release that Bush’s show at ROMP proves the Kentucky-born musician is “at the top of his game.”

Joslin said Bush is a long-time supporter of the museum and, as a link between older and younger bluegrass players, is a good choice for the museum’s opening act.

The audience cheered when members of the army’s parachuting team, the Golden Knights, stuck their landings on a grassy spot near the Four Freedoms Monument.

The team was rehearsing for this weekend’s shows, and the Hollingsworth’s were right there to watch. They all said it's the best place to view the parachutes.

The parachutes are the children’s favorite part. Mariah and Juanita practically finished each other’s sentence to tell me.
