High Lonesome: The Story of Bluegrass Music
A must-see video for die-hard Bluegrass fans, as well as a mandatory "Bluegrass primer" for those who are just becoming interested in the uniquely American roots of country music. Bluegrass as a musical form was derived from a combination of African and Scottish/Irish traditions. The video explores these origins and provides an engaging and fascinating look at a musical evolution, featuring over 100 songs and bluegrass legends like Bill Monroe, that Stanley Brothers, Mac Wiseman, Jimmy Martin, Flatt & Scruggs and many others. ~ Kathryn Tamms, Rovi
