Owensboro colleges to offer degree in bluegrass music

OWENSBORO, KY (WAVE) - Owensboro Community and Technical College and Brescia University are teaming up to offer a degree in bluegrass music.

The associate degree program could be ready by spring of 2017. Students could then transfer to the bachelor of fine arts program at Brescia.

The schools hope to take advantage of the resources at the International Bluegrass Music Center, a $15 million dollar project slated to open in 2017 as the new home of the International Bluegrass Music Museum.
