About The Author

From the University of Illinois University Library page introducing an oral history interview with Dr. Neil Rosenberg:

Neil Rosenberg earned a Ph.D. in Folklore from Indiana University and is Professor Emeritus of Folklore at Memorial University in Newfoundland. He is a renowned scholar of bluegrass and folk music and author and editor of a number of texts including Transforming Tradition and The Music of Bill Monroe (co-author). As a graduate student during the 1960s, he also served as president of the IU Campus Folksong Club and later as manager of the Bill Monroe Memorial Music Park in Bean Blossom, Indiana. As an accomplished musician, Rosenberg also played in Monroe’s house band at the park.

The IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) Foundation honored Neil with an annual scholar award. The Neil Rosenberg Bluegrass Scholar Award is an annual cash award, presented to the developing academic scholar who presents the best paper accepted by a juried academic conference on an aspect of bluegrass music. The recipient will receive a $500 honorarium plus admission to the next IBMA Business Conference and Awards Show.
