Bill Monroe in 1966
Bill Monroe & kids photo copyright Raleigh Powell
My photo of the day is another classic shot taken by Raleigh Powell. This is of Bill Monroe in Roanoke, VA, 1966. Raleigh says, "This is from the 1st year of the Roanoke Bluegrass Festival. A very small crowd (under 100)and a makeshift stage illuminated by 100-watt lightbulbs. Ralph and Carter Stanley played as well; they were the best."
