See Missouri Bluegrass legends Mona Jones and the Bluegrass Travelers, Jimmie Allison and the Ozark Rounders, and Jimmy Orchard and the Ozark Bluegrass Boys, perform live from 2 to 6 p.m. on May 20 in Rolla. The State Historical Society of Missouri and longtime mid-Missouri radio host Wayne Bledsoe pay tribute to these musicians with an afternoon honoring the region’s longest-running bluegrass festival, Bluegrass Pickin’ Time.
The festival at the Havener Center on the Missouri University of Science and Technology campus will include performances from each group as well as a jam session. In keeping with Bluegrass Pickin' Time tradition, this is a family friendly event.
This event is free and open to the public, but a suggested donation of $5 will support the preservation and promotion of SHSMO’s bluegrass collections for future generations.
