OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - Bluegrass music fans will be filling the streets of downtown Owensboro this weekend.

The Great American Bluegrass Jam showcases a variety of Bluegrass music and artists. The Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum held a ticketed performance of the Grammy-winning music group The Earls of Leicester on Friday night.

There will be a hotel jam of several musicians playing at the Holiday Inn over the course of the weekend.

Katlyn Allen, a musician from Corinth, Kentucky, says she’s passionate about Bluegrass music and is excited to share that with other artists.

“There are people that sometimes we haven’t seen for a few years or maybe even a decade – and you run into them in a place like this – it just means the world to so many of us,” Allen said. “It’s like a big family reunion every year or every time we get together at one of these, and I just feel like that’s what Bluegrass is. It’s one big family.”

The Kentucky State Fiddle Championship will be held at the Bluegrass Hall of Fame and Museum on Saturday and Sunday.

Tickets are $10 and include access to tour the museum.

There will also be events down in Rosine as part of the festival and a shuttle is provided.
