The Music of Bill Monroe featuring Peter Rowan, Tony Rice, and the Travelin’ McCoury’s 8:00 PM Kenan Auditorium Free with Student ID; $25-$35 General Public These legendary bluegrass masters pay homage to the undisputed “Father of Bluegrass” Bill Monroe. Few artists claim to have created a genre all their own, but Kentucky-born musician Bill Monroe did exactly that when he added North Carolina prodigy Earl Scruggs to his traditional stringband in 1945. Known as the Blue Grass Boys, Monroe and Scruggs, alongside singer/guitarist Lester Flatt, fiddler Chubby Wise, and bassist Howard Watts, forged new ground, not only creating an entirely unique genre of American music, but forever changing the course of American rock-and-roll with one of their most famous songs, “Blue Moon of Kentucky” - an early hit for an up-and-coming young musician named Elvis Presley.
