Owensboro, KY, August 7, 2018 – On tour for their 40th Anniversary, Hot Rize performs in Woodward Theatre on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018. 

Steeped in bluegrass tradition through long hours on the road spent listening to the genre’s giants, Hot Rize’s music was and is equally informed by a taste for the music of Leadbelly and Freddie King, swing, old-time Appalachia and more in ways that mirror the broad sweep of Bill Monroe’s influences.  Their original songs are part of the bluegrass canon, and their showmanship earned them the first ever IBMA Entertainer of the Year award.

Tickets are on sale Wednesday, August 7, 2018 at 11 am.  Preferred seating tickets are $46, and general tickets are $35.  Doors open at 7:00 pm, show begins at 8:00 pm.  Tickets are available online at:  bluegrassmuseum.org/tickets.

More information, including print-ready graphics and artist renderings of the new building, can be found at:  bluegrassmuseum.org/press.
