The Department of Music presents a Bluegrass Ensemble concert, directed by Adam Schlenker and featuring guest artist, Megan Lynch-Chowning.
Lynch-Chowning is a Seven Time National Fiddle Champion, Six Time California State Fiddle Champion, Winner of the IBMA Momentum Award for Industry Involvement, Grand Masters Traditional Fiddling Champion. She will be joining the Denison Bluegrass Ensemble on fiddle as they showcase the music from “True Life Blues: The Songs of Bill Monroe.” This grammy award winning album features a large cast of musicians each putting their own twist to these classic Monroe songs. This album really embodies the vision of the Denison Bluegrass Program. In order to preserve and perpetuate we need to learn from the source and then retell it in our own voice to keep the music alive and growing.
