More young people are picking and grinning because of the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation Play It Forward!™ Instrument Lending Program

December 1, 2011
The Bluegrass Heritage Foundation today presented a 1/4-size fiddle to young Miss Leise Johnson of Dallas, Texas through the Play It Forward!™ Instrument Lending Program.  The Foundation also recently placed a new Recording King 000-size guitar with young Mr. Mark Harz of Amarillo Texas.  And Parker and Brody Genzel of Anna, Texas, along with their bandmate Jonathan Smith of Anna, have formed a new youth bluegrass band known as the Bluegrass Brothers – and all three are playing instruments loaned to them under the Foundation’s Play It Forward!™ Instrument Lending Program!  We couldn’t be more excited that so many young people are getting to grow and advance by playing bluegrass music.  We appreciate all who have generously supported Foundation so that these 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.
