The Professors of Bluegrass is revamping its web presence in anticipation of a new CD release later this month.
The bluegrass band — which features President-elect Peter Salovey as its bass player — announced the launch of a new website, professorsofbluegrass.com, on its Facebook page Sunday. The website is a belated replacement for the band’s old site, which crashed several years ago.
Featuring photos, videos and sound clips, the site describes the band and its history, and provides information about an upcoming show at ROMP 2013 in Owensboro, K.Y., on June 29.
Fans can also look forward to the release of a new Professors of Bluegrass CD, entitled “Pick or Perish,” before the end of June, according to the site’s homepage.
Co-founded in 1990 by Salovey and psychology professor Kelly Brownell, who are both bluegrass enthusiasts, the Professors of Bluegrass has existed in various incarnations over the past two decades as members have joined and left the Yale community. The band has performed at many bluegrass festivals as well as at local venues like Toad’s Place.
