Bill Monroe Centennial
Birthday Celebration

"Bluegrass has brought more people together and
made more friends than any music in the world.
You meet people at festivals and renew acquaintances year after year."

Bill Monroe

A century after his birth in Rosine, Kentucky, the music genre created by Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass Music, is now established globally and was enjoyed by tens of millions who celebrated The Bill Monroe Centennial in 2011.

The Bill Monroe 100th Birthday Celebration was a yearlong commemoration of Bluegrass music and its history, and a lively observance of the profound influence Bluegrass has had on the music world and the lives of folks across the globe.

About the Bill Monroe medallion

Artist: Rex Robinson, Philpot, Kentucky, Blue Moon
Inspired by Blue Moon of Kentucky, Granite medallion

An expertly crafted waterjet natural stone medallion from Marvelous Medallion Manufacturing is certain to become an instant, and venerable, accent piece for any home or business, or give added flair and creative distinction to civic, public or commercial projects.

The Marvelous Medallions computer-driven, waterjet system involves a precise cutting device that utilizes high water pressure with garnet (which acts as an abrasive agent) to generate cutting of hard surface materials from granite, marble and travertine to vinyl composition tile. When it comes to waterjet medallions, seeing may be believing, but owning a Marvelous Medallion is Marvelous.
