The Birthplace of Country Music Museum, in partnership with the East Tennessee Bluegrass Association, hosts a monthly gathering of local musicians for a free bluegrass jam session every fourth Saturday at the museum, 2 - 5 p.m.
The predecessor to bluegrass and country music, old-time music has been passed down for generations. However, the stories of women within the genre are not well-known. Many of these hidden heroines faced fierce opposition against playing music in public or at home, either by their churches or their husbands. This special exhibit gives voice to women who impacted the genre and spotlights the artists who are carrying on these traditions today.
