"Fire on the Mountain: A Bluegrass Symposium" will bring experts in, and aficionados of, American bluegrass music to the Barker Center on Saturday, February 6, for an all-day program, followed by an evening performance at 7 P.M. featuring  Grammy Award winners Alison Brown ’84 (banjo), Sam Bush (mandolin), and Bobby Hicks (fiddle). Another Grammy winner, Neil Rosenberg, an author and folklorist, will also participate. Sponsors include the Office for the Arts at Harvard, the Folklore and Mythology Program, and the Harvard College American Music Association, a student group dedicated to American “roots” music founded by Forrest O’Connor ’10. The symposium is free and open to the public; no tickets are required.
