Times-News: Hendersonville resident to donate 300 albums to Bluegrass Music Museum

From the Times-News

Story by Joey Millwood

The sound of the Monroe Brothers filled Fred Chaffee’s dining room. The 84-year-old closed his eyes, nodded his head and softly whispered the words of the bluegrass music he’s loved for nearly 50 years.

“This music here,” he said, “you won’t hear anywhere else.”

Chaffee has 460 records of the different artists and songs that he loves. He’s donating 300 of those albums to the International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro, Ky. at the end of September.
