“We first heard Old Salt Union play at Henderson’s Bluegrass in the Park last August.  We haven’t missed a chance to hear them in Evansville and Nashville.  They pull you right up onto the edge of your seat – if not all the way to your feet as they play.  Although they play the standard Bluegrass instruments, they take it teasingly to the edge and back again with syncopation, melodies, and mastery of their strings.  They are coming right here to Owensboro on February 26 at the Bluegrass Museum.  Don’t miss a chance to hear this up and coming group in your own back yard.  There’s a bonus.  After you hear them, their music will stay in your head for days!” – Dr. Roger Humphrey, Museum Supporter
