    Default Bill Monroe Centennial Exhibit

    I wanted to start a separate thread for pictures I took of the Bill Monroe Centennial Exhibit at the International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro. The fiddle is Uncle Pen's.

    I don't know whether it's just me,but that Fiddle seems very deep waisted & the waist very 'flattened'. Either way,it looks to be in better shape than his nephew's mandolin & no doubt it's a lot older too.Thanks once again Mick,
