We haven’t confirmed this, but we’re pretty sure Pick or Perish by the Professors of Bluegrass is the first bluegrass CD ever produced featuring the president of an Ivy League university. Bass player Peter Salovey ’86PhD was one of the founders of the group in 1990. The album, the Professors’ first, was released in June; you can find it on Amazon, CD Baby, or iTunes.
