On a special ridge in Kentucky ...
Howdy Friends !
This is Campbell Mercer writing to you from my office high on Jerusalem Ridge overlooking the town of Rosine, Kentucky. We call this not only the birthplace and boyhood home of famous people like Bill and Charlie Monroe, but also the birthplace of an American art form. When you come to Jerusalem Ridge you will feel and experience the history everywhere you turn. You will see the views and hear the sounds of nature that inspired young Bill. And you'll experience the warmth of the Jerusalem Ridge folks.
The Jerusalem Ridge Foundation is operated by a volunteer army. We are updating the information about the JRBC daily. Those of you who have sent email inquiries will soon receive an email back from us! And all of you have been added to the email address book. You will receive updates and newsletters from my office and the time approaches for the greatest festival in the world.
Today, there are ten dedicated individuals who make up the board of the Foundation. In addition, there are twenty wonderful local people who give tours of the birthplace of bluegrass music seven days a week. During the Jerusalem Ridge Bluegrass Celebration, the number of volunteers grows to almost three hundred. But there is much more to do and we need your help too!
Please tour the web site and learn about the project, this year's festival and have a look at past festivals. Remember to give us a call or drop us an email if you have any questions.
