"Bill Monroe 1965-Sep-xx First Bluegrass Festival (c033)"

Toyoda-Otsuka Cassette Tape #033, a continuation of Cassette #032, features the tail-end portion of famed bluegrass promoter Carlton Haney’s “Bluegrass Story” from the genre’s VERY first bluegrass festival, held at Cantrell’s Horse Farm in Fincastle, VA, September 5, 1965. Haney tells the story of the development of bluegrass music by featuring Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass”, along with a host of marvelous special guests. At this stage of the “Story”, Haney has begun to introduce the then modern day Blue Grass Boys. The recording seems to have been edited somewhat, making the chronology a bit confusing about three-quarters of the way through Side A.
