OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) - The International Bluegrass Music Museum has a new executive director who takes office next month.

The museum’s board of directors recently named Chris Joslin as executive director. Joslin comes from Nashville, where he worked as a recruiter with the Sanford Group.

Joslin replaces Gabrielle Gray, who stepped down in December but retained her position as producer of the museum’s annual ROMP festival. Gray is also the museum’s primary grant writer.

Joslin was a founding member of the bluegrass group Crucial Smith, playing banjo and resonator guitar. He says the new job will allow him to blend his corporate experience with his love of bluegrass music.

He is expected to begin working at the Museum on Sept. 1.
