The Spinney Brothers PresentationBean Blossom, IN -- The Spinney Brothers, Canada's International Bluegrass band, made a special presentation at Bill Monroe Memorial Music Park in Bean Blossom, Indiana during their evening performance on Wednesday, September 23rd.

The band celebrated a recent #1 song with "My Music Comes From Bill" from their highly successful Tried & True album on Mountain Fever Records. The song, written by Bill Castle and Steve Watts, speaks of the influence Monroe has had on the band musically.

The Spinney Brothers #1 Song - "My Music Comes From Bill"
