The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Punch Brothers headline this year's ROMP bluegrass festival in Owensboro. The annual festival, now in its 14th year, serves as a fundraiser for the International Bluegrass Music Museum.
The 12th annual ROMP Fest is underway next week at the beautiful Yellow Creek Park in Owensboro. Known for its stellar line-ups, gorgeous campground setting, and artist-led workshops, the festival supports the International Bluegrass Music Museum (IBMM) as it strives to preserve and promote bluegrass music internationally. Former IBMM Executive Director and current ROMP Festival Executive Producer Gabrielle Gray stops by Sounds Good today to give us a preview of this year's festival.
Chris Thile brings the Punch Brothers back for the fourth time to the International Bluegrass Music Museum's ROMP Festival in Owensboro this month. Thile says he loves the space and the enthusiastic group of festival goers in his Sounds Good conversation with Tracy Ross. He also talks about how being a new father has influenced his music writing, the differences playing in duos and groups and an upcoming performance at Murray State University.
