Valerie Smith and Liberty Pike visited the schools in Tullahoma and Winchester, TN for the South Jackson Civic Center. They taught about the instruments in a bluegrass band and also the history of the "Father of Bluegrass", Bill Monroe. The program also includes the names of the original Bluegrass Boys and the instruments they played in Bill Monroe's band. The program is a lot of fun for the band and the students and interactive. Good for all ages and is a solid addition for any school curriculum program.
