There are two things that I will forvever be grateful to my father for. One is for perfectly seasoning my cast iron skillets, and the other for taking me to see Bill Monroe & his Blue Grass Boys at Woodstock Opera House in Woodstock, Illinois. Their gray suits, ties and white Stetsons just killed me. Because I had musician parents my musical tastes have always been eclectic, but that summer night in Illinois, I fell in love... with Bluegrass. I really did.
I named my teensy stationery biz, Bean Blossom Press, after his Bean Blossom Festival.
Today would be the centennial birthday of Bill Monroe.
