top photoGREENVILLE, Ky. (2/8/17) — Muhlenberg County Public Libraries will be hosting a presentation about local musicians Feb. 16 at Thistle Cottage at 122 S. Cherry St., Greenville.

Nancy Richey will be visiting the library’s Thistle Cottage branch to talk about Mose Rager’s life and influence on music. Richey will be joined by local thumbpicker Joe Hudson, who will perform prior to the start of the discussion.

Richey is the co-author of the book, “Mose Rager: Kentucky's Incomparable Guitar Master”, along with the late Carlton Jackson, an associate professor and Visual Resources Librarian at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green.

As a member of the Kentucky Humanities Council’s Speaker Bureau for 2016-17, Richey travels around the state speaking about Mose Rager.

Hudson, a Muhlenberg County native, is one of only 76 performers (musicians, dancers, actors and storytellers) listed in the Performing Artists directory for the Kentucky Arts Council, which requires an application and selection process by the Arts Council. He recently performed at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville along with famous musician and actor John Schneider, known by many for his portrayal of Bo Duke in the popular 1970s television show The Dukes of Hazzard. Hudson also serves as the executive director of the National Thumbpickers Hall of Fame Organization.

Hudson will begin playing at Thistle Cottage at 6 p.m. Feb. 16 followed by Richey’s presentation at 7 p.m.

The event is free, funded in part by a grant from the Felix Martin Jr. Foundation and presented as a service of the Kentucky Humanities Council.
