Bluegrass Country Soul Gives Film Memorabilia to Museum.

The Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum (shown above) is set to open on October 18, 2018. Bluegrass Country Soul will be represented in an exhibit that will include production photographs. There’s a shot of Bob Kaylor, the director of photography, moving in for a close-up of J.D. Crowe & the Kentucky Mountain Boys, and Carlton Haney in the fields of the festival. We’ve also donated a rare, original movie poster, press book, flyers and newspaper clippings with reviews from the movie’s 1972 opening.

When the newly restored, high definition, wide-screen version of the film is completed, we will donate a special archival copy to the museum that can be shown to generations of bluegrass music lovers for years to come.

An archival copy is actually a hard-drive that will be updated over time as digital technology improves. Your purchase of a deck of bluegrass playing cards now will help to defray some of the costs to create this long-term gift.
