Synopsis

Bluegrass Journey
In the late '30s, mandolin player and bandleader Bill Monroe had the idea of merging the lonesome sound of classic Appalachian string bands with the speed and melodic force of the blues. As Monroe put together a band that could play the new sound he heard in his head, a new musical style called bluegrass was born, and with the dawning of the 21st Century, the sound Monroe pioneered was not only alive and well, but gaining a whole new generation of fans, thanks to the success of the film O Brother, Where Art Thou?. Bluegrass Journey is a documentary which offers a look at the history of bluegrass as well as a glimpse of its current stars as they perform for fans and jam with fellow greats. The film includes interviews and performances from the Del McCoury Band, Nickel Creek, Jerry Douglas, Tom O'Brien, Tony Rice, and many more. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
