April 9 – Bluegrass Trivia Question

APRIL 9 TRIVIA QUESTION

I’ve always been fascinated by folks’ middle names. You know, middle names were rarely used until well into the 1800s.

In any case, here’s a fun little project you can research to make your reply. Earliest respondent with the most correct will win. I’ll give you a dozen middle names, you tell me who the nationally known bluegrassers are/were. OK? Only the tie breaker is the least bit obscure, if you know your bluegrass.

1. Samuel
2. Maria
3. Smith
4. Delano
5. Eugene
6. Raymond
7. Bell
8. Lea
9. Edmund
10. Dee
11. Lynn
12. Ann
13. Tie-breaker. Not “exactly” a bluegrasser, but important in the bluegrass story. Middle-named for someone who became famous. “Pendleton”.
