Way Library to host Bluegrass program on April 2

Way Library will host a program in Owens Community College’s “America’s Music: A film History of Our Popular Music” series on Tuesday, April 2 at 7:00 pm.
The Hand Hewn String Band of northwest Ohio kicks off the program on the lower level of the library at 7 pm with a live performance featuring selections from their repertoire of old-time fiddle tunes, bluegrass, country, and gospel songs. Members are Dave Moore, Sr., Brenda Holdridge, Jimmy Thompson, Don Pawlicki, Randy Shaffer, Jerry Eicher and Doren Wells.
Following the concert, the documentary film ‘High Lonesome,’ will be shown. The documentary chronicles the history of bluegrass music from its Appalachian roots and the songs of Bill Monroe—the “father of Kentucky bluegrass”—through the innovations which have shaped its modern form and the work of contemporary artists like fiddler/singer Martina McBride. Dr. Matthew Donahue from the Department of Popular Culture at Bowling Green State University will present a brief lecture after the film.

Admission and refreshments are free.

The film history project is a collaboration of the American Library Association and Tribeca Film Institute, funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Ohio Humanities Council.
