Bluegrass Music in Raleigh: Past, Present, Future 

When: Mon., Sept. 21, 7 p.m. 2015
Price: free
Until the International Bluegrass Music Association relocated its annual convention to Raleigh two years ago (and reinvented it in the process), few might have considered this a bluegrass town. But from being an early home to Bill Monroe and hosting important performers on local radio and, well, being a pivotal part of “Wagon Wheel,” the city’s bluegrass past is actually quite a tale. Just before IBMA comes back to town, a formidable panel of performers and scholars gather to talk (and maybe pick and sing) this history and the form’s future. From young banjo activist Hank Smith and true form pioneer Alice Gerrard, the perspectives are both broad and deep. —Grayson Haver Currin
