"The Delmore Brothers, God, I really loved them! I think they've influenced every harmony I've ever tried to sing!"- Bob Dylan
"The home of Country music is the perfect setting to share their personal stories and legendary songs," Sherry Bond, publisher of the Delmore catalog, said. "It will be a compelling hour, and one their fans won't want to miss."
"The boy at the door said, 'since you two are brothers, why don't you just call yourselves the Delmore Brothers?'"
Admission to the program is free with museum admission or a museum membership.
ABOUT DELMORE BROTHERS

The brothers enjoyed success from 1926-1952 and starred on the Grand Ole Opry throughout the 1930s. They were pioneers of the Country genre who enjoyed enormous popularity and a string of hits that includes standbys: "There's More Pretty Girls Than One," "Beautiful Brown Eyes," "Southern Moon," "When It's Time for the Whippoorwill to Sing," and "Fifteen Miles to Birmingham."
