More young people are learning to play through
the Play It Forward!™ Instrument Lending Program

June 9, 2015
Ben Woolverton of Melissa TexasThe Bluegrass Heritage Foundation has recently presented several instruments to young people in and around the North Texas area through the Play It Forward!™ Instrument Lending Program.  Ben Woolverton (pictured) of Melissa, Texas is learning to play banjo on a Recording King RK-R20 five-string banjo provided by the Foundation.   Eight-year-old Nate Pedersen of Dallas is working on his fiddling skills with a 1/2 size fiddle, and his 10-year-old brother Luke Pedersen is learning to play guitar on a Recording King RD06.  We are thrilled that more young people are getting the opportunity to learn and grow by playing bluegrass.  We appreciate all who have so generously supported the Foundation so that more young people have the opportunity to learn to play.

The Bluegrass Heritage Foundation is a non-profit organization, run by volunteers,
promoting bluegrass music in Texas. While it's free to get in the door to many of our events,
keeping the doors open isn't free. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
