Film on the life of bluegrass musician Bill Monroe to be told by former bandmates

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, June 9, 2014 5:01 AM EDT

A documentary on the life of bluegrass musician Bill Monroe is debuting on Kentucky Education Television.

The film, "Powerful: Bill Monroe Remembered," tells the story of the Ohio County native through remembrances by his bandmates who played with him until his death in 1996.

The storytellers include Earl Scruggs, Jimmy Martin, Bobby Hicks and Del McCoury.

The two-hour documentary will be shown on KET on Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST. The film was produced by the International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro. The film grew out of the museum's oral history project that sought to record the histories of the living members of bluegrass music's first and early second generations.

After its premiere on KET, the museum will show the film at its annual bluegrass ROMP festival beginning June 25.
