ROMP Kentucky music festival postponed indefinitely
Add another cancellation to the coronavirus pandemic.
The 17th annual ROMP bluegrass festival at Yellow Creek Park, which was expected to bring more than 25,000 people to town in June, has been postponed indefinitely.
But Chris Joslin, executive director of the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum, which produces the festival, said he’s hoping ROMP can be rescheduled for later in the year.
The lineup was to have included Chris Thile’s American Public Media show “Live from Here,” Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers, The Devil Makes Three, Sam Bush, We Banjo 3, Mandolin Orange, Dan Tyminski, Town Mountain, Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper (winners of the 2020 Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album), Balsam Range, Front Country, Trout Steak Revival, Blue Highway, The Price Sisters and Giri & Uma Peters.
Mark Calitri, president of the Owensboro-Daviess County Convention & Visitors Bureau, said. “Bluegrass music is a major part of our identity and ROMP is how many visitors experience Owensboro and Daviess County initially. It’s an important gateway to discovering all that we have to offer as a community.”
He said the Hall of Fame “is a vital tourism partner and Visit Owensboro will do all we can to support ROMP to ensure this signature event remains strong for our area.”
