    Didn't realize you'd started a Bluegrass thread. A genre near and dear to my heart. I don't really have a lot, but I like what I got.

    Been playing Dolly Parton's 1999 - 2002 Bluegrass Trilogy today. You'd never know that it took her 35 albums before she did a bluegrass effort. She's a total natural.

    Yes, I started it a while back. Surprised that there is so little interest in such an excellent genre. To,each his own, I suppose. It is one of my favorites.

    I have that trio of albums and agree that Dolly is a natural bluegrass singer. Another mainstream country artist that has done some excellent bluegrass is Patty Loveless. If you have not done so already, check out her Mountain Soul albums (vols 1 & 2). She is another natural!

    We went to see The Travelin' McCourys a while ago. They were great!!

    Been listening to this local group of young guys called Rivers. They are building quite a following. They have a unique, haunting sound. It's memorizing watching them live. You start to sway and groove without realizing it. Super talented.

    Picked up a couple of new to me Flatt & Scruggs albums this weekend. $4 well spent! Currently listening to this one.

    Went to a Pickin and Fiddlin Fest in Roxbury CT yesterday. I published a You tube video from the event of 2016 in this thread before as I have few CD's of it. I actually now have 6 and they are all by this man here.
