ballpienhammer Review: Bluegrass Breakdown (8) RE: Review: Bluegrass Breakdown 24 Nov 02


as a newcomer to bluegrass and very infatuated with it, thanks for
the opinions and bibliography. I began the "Appalachian folk music= bluegrass" thread as a sincere question. I am happy with the many kind folks who offered remarks and insight. I am not a purist, merely one who loves MOST folk music styles. Best of all,I like the pickin' and can imagine the grinnin' by the artists. I only wish I had the genius many of you possess to be so musically creative and artistic. In the mean time I will listen...and read...and enjoy. Listening to three 9 yr olds play Wildwood Flower last week, in the back of a little country music store gave me goosebumps. This website and forum has opened up musical enjoyment to me(an old jug band player), I had hard- headedly refused to hear: bluegrass. Now I weigh carefully what I hear, not being crical, merely looking for the "perfect sound". I'm certain I will find many! thanks, Tim
