Part 1

Due to threat of rain, Bill Monroe moved the Sunday Morning Hymn Program into the Brown County Jamboree Barn. He also restricted tape recording at this performance because he felt it would distract from the religious service. I was unable to tape this part of the festival, but Barbara Thomas of Tahlequah,OK sent me a copy of her recording after the festival concluded. There is some noise and distortion on this recording that could not be corrected.
