A brief history of bluegrass music l.jpg

A Brief History of Bluegrass Music

Bluegrass music started in the Appalachian

Mountains in the 1950’s. It came from

mountain music which was around a long

time before that. Bill Monroe, a mandolin

player, is considered the father of bluegrass

music. He started a band called The Bluegrass

Boys, named after the bluegrass state,

Kentucky.
