Band brings ‘Not Too Bad’ bluegrass to Sullivan


News Release

---- — Indiana’s official statewide folklife program will join the Sullivan County Public Library to bring a free concert by The Not Too Bad Bluegrass Band. The event will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 4 in Crossroads Church at 2 S. Court St. in downtown Sullivan.

Hailing from Lawrence and Monroe counties, the band’s music tradition is shaped by the legacy of Bill Monroe and the legendary Bean Blossom Bluegrass Festival in Brown County. The band has enjoyed nearly three decades of playing and touring. In 2010, they represented Indiana’s tradition of bluegrass music in Washington, D.C., performing for standing-room-only crowds at the Library of Congress and the Kennedy Center as part of the American Folklife Center’s Homegrown Concert Series.

The concert is funded through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Contact the Sullivan County Public Library at 812-268-4957 or visit www.sullivan.lib.in.us for more information.
