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