Use any instrumentalists such as violinists, cornetists, piano accordionists, or any others that may be available. And, there are the ever popular Male Quartets, mixed ensembles, and sololists. Practically every County in Kentucky has a wealth of musical talent available and the musicians will be glad to serve.
