Thread Name: Is bluegrass an attitude?
Subject: RE: Is bluegrass an attitude?
When "Bluegrass" came out of the closet back in the 60's and 70's, many very talented folks who had been playing novelty music set the comedy aside and emphasized the music--It struck me that a lot of people really wanted to seperate themselves from the "Hayseed Hillbilly" rountine and be taken more seriously as musicians--

As to Bluegrass and dancing, I must agree with Martin--it is about only music that you can use for clogging--
