    Bluegrass Music

    My daughter (19) has developed a liking for Bluegrass Music.
    Yes, I had her DNA tested and she is mine.

    I would like to give her a CD for Christmas. Maybe something that even I could tolerate listening to, if possible.
    I know nothing about this except that she already has some "Mumford & Sons", so it would preferably be something different.
    I know there are connoisseurs on the board.

    Thank you for your help. I need it.

    Newgrass Revival, Yonder Mountain Stringband are the kind of BG band that stretches out the genre.

    Classics of course are Seldom Scene, Bill Monroe, Stanley Brothers.

    A great CD for that genre is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_th...le_Be_Unbroken

    Yonder Mountain Stringband is a good one, especially for someone just getting into bluegrass, I know, I'm one of them.

    Just bought tickets for a show in March...Jay Ungar and Molly Mason including the family. I'm excited! Any of you people ever seen these guys.

    Of course we shouldn't forget the late Earl Scruggs.

    I'd check out a Punch Brothers album. Chris Thile is a master of the mandolin.

    Any Union Station mention merits a Jerry Douglas mention.

    Thile's previous band, Nickel Creek, was pretty popular in a pop-bluegrass sort of way.

    You're absolutely right. I was at their show at the Taft back in March and he did an extended bit by himself while the rest of the band was taking a break. Brilliant stuff. Every member of that band is top notch.

    Re: Bluegrass Music

    Steve Martin is my suggestion.

    Also, can the mods move this thread to the A&E sub-forum?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
