Fortunato What is the Best Blue-Grass Album (41) RE: What is the Best Blue-Grass Album 26 Oct 11


Kristine,
    If I were a younger person (not hard to imagine?) and enjoyed Celtic music in it's purer forms (not 100 violins on a floating stage with 500 flood lights, and young women in evening gowns singing vaguely celtic tunes). I would probably enjoy entering Bluegrass through Nickel Creek. Nickel Creek

    I grok the entry point for a genre is not always the roots, but rather one step beyond the fusion that lead the listener there. I would have suggested a Celtic/Bluegrass fusion band, they exist, but that fusion seems to me to in an early stage.

    Fuse them yourself, Kristine, and let us know how it goes.
Save this thread by all our sages for when you want to go to the roots, or find out who Charlie Waller was.

regards,
Chance
