Grand Ole Opry Star Mike Snider brings his combination of musical excellence and rural comedy to Woodward Theatre at the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum on Saturday, August 3.

Snider began playing old-time banjo at age 16 after hearing a Flatt & Scruggs album. Soon after, he became the Tennessee State Bluegrass Banjo Champion, then won the Mid-South Banjo Playing Contest. Snider’s popularity grew with appearances on The Nashville Network’s (TNN) Nashville Now alongside Ralph Emery, and as a cast member of the syndicated comedy variety show Hee Haw, which he joined in 1987. In 1990, six years after his Opry debut, the legendary Minnie Pearl inducted Snider as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Snider continues to entertain Opry audiences in the comedic traditions of Pearl, Rod Brasfield, Jerry Clower, and others.

Tickets for the concert are on sale now. VIP tickets are $26, and reserved seating is $21. Discounted museum admission to tour exhibits is available to all concert attendees. Bar and concessions will be open at 5 pm, concert begins at 7 pm. Tickets are available at bluegrasshall.org or by calling 270-926-7891.
