beachcomber Genealogy of Bluegrass (111* d) RE: Genealogy of Bluegrass 01 Sep 02

Do I correctly gather from these , amazingly interesting ,postings , that the form of bluegrass singing is as rigid that it must reflect that of Bill Monroe. Would Bill then have , constantly, recruited singers (and musicians) who could "fit" a pattern that he had instituted??. I seem to remember no less a worthy than Eric Weisberg, at a workshop session, some years ago, pronounce that , in bluegrass, the lead is always accompanied by either two voices above or two below, did I remember correctly? I am finding this thread fascinating to say the least and it reminds me of the reasons that I joined "Mudcat" some time ago now.
