style. an appreciation.

Discussion in 'Music genres, Bands and Artists' started by Ripple, Dec 4, 2007.

  1. Here's to any bluegrass fans out there. name some notable bands that have shaped your appreciation to this wonderfully uplifting genre.
  2. I dunno any bluegrass, but I'm interested in getting to know some killer bands, so I want to see some suggestions. All I know is that John Butler was influenced by the genre in his playing.
  3. alright i'm just going to run down my itunes and grab some random ones that I think you should get to know;

    bela fleck and the flecktones - jazzy but with hints of bluegrass ;banjo;
    Cornmeal - newgrass or jamgrass
    Earl Scruggs - traditional bluegrass
    Goose Creek Symphony - traces of bluegrass
    The Gourds - jamgrass
    Hackensaw Boys - jamgrass
    Jerry Garcia and David Grisman / Old and in the Way - Garciagrass haha
    Hot Buttered Rum String Band - jamgrass
    Leftover Salmon - newgrass jamgrass
    New Grass Revival
    New Monsoon
    Old Crow Medicine Show
    Railroad Earth

  4. Listened to some on youtube..

    The Flecktones, damn good from what I've heard.

    David Grisman.. and Jerry Garcia. Awsomeness. "The thrill is gone!" Not that bluegrass-y tho.

    Goose Creek, good too. Quite country.

    The Gourds. Really good. I liked Burn The Honeysuckle, and Gin & Juice (cover of Snoop) lmao :) too good.

    Okay enough for now, I'm stick on the Gourds, damn good music.
