Bluegrass

Listen Now play-now

Description

channel-cover
Musicianship that stupefies and songs that spin stories using banjos, acoustic guitars, mandolins, fiddles and dobros. From its old-timey roots in Appalachia and the front porches of rural Kentucky and Tennessee, to the urban stylings of newgrass, it's a bit of folk, country, jazz and blues all combined together in dazzling pickin' and sweet vocal harmonies. You're guaranteed to hear many of the finest songs of the genre performed by such phenomenal artists like Alison Krauss, Bela Fleck, Ricky Skaggs, Nickel Creek, Doc Watson and Bill Monroe.
