(upper photo) Glasgow and Barren County have a rich musical heritage that reaches back to the earliest days of our community's existence. In the late 19th and early 20th century, numerous musical groups were active in our area. The Glasgow Musicale is pleased to share with the community some memories of our local musical tradition as we observe National Music Week (May 6-13). National Music Week has as its objective "to create an understanding and appreciation of the value of music in the home, the community, the nation, and the world." The image is of the Glasgow Concert Band posed on the steps of the Barren County Courthouse in 1920.
