The $850 scholarship will enable Prill to be a resident at the center for eight days in August to study bluegrass guitar with master artists and top performers, including Jack Lawrence. The Augusta Heritage Center is internationally known for activities relating to traditional folk-life and music of many cultures with an emphasis on the southern Appalachian region.
