The New and Improved Bluegrass Thread
 
:eek:

I was just starting my morning off by listening to some Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys. "Make a thread," the voice said.

Bluegrass is the music of my childhood (or one of them) - I have some relatives that run a bluegrass barn and I used to go there a lot growing up.



 

(this is it)

I'm hardly an expert though. Recommend some other good stuff.

I like Peter Rowan although he has a more Western feel. He definately has a great voive. Del McCourey Band has always been great live.

if you can stand using realplayer this website is a pretty good resource: http://www.honkingduck.com/BAZ/honkingduck78s.php

roscoe holcomb is hands down my favorite singer/banjo player. you must give him a listen if you haven't heard him yet.

Last weekend my Dad found a 5 LP at the Flee Market called Folk Songs and Instrumental Music of the Southern Mountains. THere's some really good bluegrass stuff on it. Very good find

Though I've never really gotten into bluegrass, it always puts a smile on my face.
