THE HISTORY OF BLUEGRASS MUSIC
Wednesday, January 16th at 7:00 p.m.

The Newtown Square Historical Society invites you to our monthly program on Wednesday, January 16th at 7:00 p.m. at the Newtown Square Township Building to hear local resident and musician David Robinson speak on the roots and history of bluegrass music.

David will discuss the evolution of America’s homegrown art of Bluegrass from Ireland to the Appalachians, throughout the nation and to the world as it evolved from folk and regional music into a distinct instrumentation and vocal form that now also incorporates Jazz and Classical music.

David is a long time musician who plays weekly with a Bluegrass gathering at a restaurant in Ardmore. Over his career he has played with bar bands in this area and New York City, and interviewed and wrote articles on three pivotal Nashville Bluegrass banjo players.
