THS Member in the News: Central NY’s BILL KNOWLTON

A long time member, Bill Knowlton wears many hats.  Historic theaters are one of his passions – Bill was a founding board member of the Landmark Theater (Loew’s State) in Syracuse and continues to be a fierce supporter of that magnificent house today.

Bill is also well known as a bluegrass aficionado and historian of this great form of American music.   We hope you enjoy this enlightening article about a Central New York living legend!

    I think Bill is right when he says that you discover bluegrass in your 40s. I do not listen to it often, but I HAVE developed an appreciation for it, and love to experience it live. We have several friends who play banjo, fiddle, and mandolin, in addition to guitar. One of my wife’s childhood friends, who she reconnected with about ten years ago, is a bluegrass banjo player, and my wife wrote a song for her and her band to play, which they do.
