Bluegrass Review July 8, 2017-July 14, 2017 #1728

The show opens with songs about love, and the majority are happy ones. If you know bluegrass, you know that’s not the normal ratio. The Gem of Bluegrass highlights twin instruments, such as when two fiddles or banjos play at the same time. Later, we play Farm songs. There are some great ones in recent bluegrass, and we grab a handful. Finally, three bluegrass artists tell of the connections between their songs and their lives.
