It's a keeper
This is an example of what we would expect to see in someones collection of bluegrass music.
It's Bluegrass Music.
This recording is definitely bluegrass music. It can be anywhere between the traditional sounds of the Stanley Brothers, Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin or more modern sounds of IIIrd Tyme Out, Alison Krauss, or the Seldom Scene.
   Can be a mixture of other types of music along with bluegrass or no bluegrass at all. You be the judge of the music.

Bluegrass Connection(tm)1995
The Bluegrass Connection(tm)1995

The Bluegrass Connection(tm), is the second Bluegrass Music site created on the World Wide Web. Our mission, design and concept was developed during 1994 and The Bluegrass Connection website was introduced on the Internet during 1995 and presented at the 1995 IBMA in Owensboro, Kentucky.

During our early years The Bluegrass Connection would highlight a particular band or artist for a period of time on our homepage. As a result, many bands were able to reach out to their fans and introduce themselves to new audiences quickly. Due to many inquiries and requests to bring that feature back, we have reinstituted the "featured band" on our homepage.

 

 

The Bluegrass Connection provides reviews of Bluegrass Music submissions.
