More About Kentucky's Bluegrass Music by James C. Claypool
 
 
 
Overview
It is likely that most fans of bluegrass music would concede that no state should be more associated with bluegrass music than Kentucky and rightly so. Bluegrass music draws its name from the band that Kentuckian Bill Monroe formed during the late 1930s and 1940s. Bill named his band Bill Monroe and The Blue Grass Boys to honor his home state. Eventually, the music these bands and others like them were playing came to be known as bluegrass music. Later, another Kentuckian, Ebo Walker, while playing with the Bowling Green-based bluegrass band, New Grass Revival, coined the phrase newgrass to describe the band s progressive style of music. Other Kentuckians such as Bobby and Sonny Osborne, J. D. Crowe, Ricky Skaggs, and Dale Ann Bradley have become bluegrass stars. Some of the musicians from Kentucky covered in this book are quite famous some are not. Famous or not, all of them have a deep-rooted passion for the music they play."
