Thread Name: Is bluegrass an attitude?
Subject: RE: Is bluegrass an attitude?
Thanks, Stephen. Bet playing with Ralph, if only for two gigs on tour, was a real kick. Ralph sounds exactly like he's sounded for decades--that's something for the rest of us to aim at---still belting it out at, what, 80? Harmonica sounded good, too. Now that's not a "traditional bluegrass instrument". Maybe we should, like Ralph, call the whole thing "mountain music" and forget artificial distinctions between "bluegrass" and "old time".
