Bill Monroe

In 2011, Twangbox Productions was pleased to produced some of the most listened-to content celebrating Bill Monroe’s Centennial. Our work was made possible, in part, by the generous support of the Hellman Family Foundation and the Foundation For Bluegrass Music.

  • Check out our Bill Monroe Centennial page on NPR Music for extended web content. Scroll to the bottom of the page to hear six web-only audio clips featuring Chris Thile + Michael Daves, Alice Gerrard, Gene Lowinger, Tony Trischka, Sam Bush, + Laurie Lewis.
  • Friday, September 30th: Twangbox produced the half-hour documentary “True Songs: A Centennial Celebration of Bill Monroe” for The Story with Dick Gordon. You can listen online.
