...an expansion of Tom Adler's 2011 book

Book Cover
Bean Blossom:
The Brown County Jamboree and Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Festivals


This site offers a place for a few more stories, pictures, videos, listings, and anecdotes that could not be included in my 2011 book, simply because there is too much historic and interesting material out there.    

This site includes a commenting/contributing mechanism ("Comments") allowing visitors -- like YOU! -- to include your own stories or comments about the website, or about  the country music park at Bean Blossom, Indiana. It's still sort of preliminary, but give it a try!  Or try the BLOG!
