I've been listening to it a lot lately. I figure I should as I'm learning bluegrass banjo playing. These are really some talented musicians. Still.... I like the banjo parts best of all

When I hear bluegrass music it makes me feel really happy. And banjo parts are great, I agree with you!

Check out Appalachian Road Show and Barry Abernathy's new album. High quality stuff.

In my opinion, a lot of the newer bluegrass songs are losing the drive that really defines the music. I cut my teeth on Tony Rice, Bluegrass Album Band, Lonesome River Band (early band), etc. ARS and Abernathy is rock solid music from more recent albums.

YES! The great songs by Tony Rice, Ralph Stanley or Lonesome River Band really amaze me with their mastery and creativity. And in general, bluegrass music has always been something special for me. My father was a local musician in Washington state and recorded several albums in bluegrass style. He didn't become a popular star but his small legacy is very significant for me.

Several years ago I opened a small coffee shop and his music frequently plays there as well as other bluegrass tracks. The problem was I couldn't pay for the popular licensed tracks, so I had to find another way. Fortunately, I found many masterpieces at https://depositphotos.com/music.html that allowed me to diversify the playlist.

You have to log a lot of time listening to blugrass music in order to play bluegrass music. Lacking your own personal library, you can find a lot of good material on you tube. ANd, you should be able to play it @ your coffee shop free of charge.

Here is a good online bluegrass streaming station that maybe you could play at your coffee house. I don't know the laws so I say maybe.

Too bad it's a five hour drive, your place to mine.
We might never meet.
I agree that the banjo parts are the best.
And without a banjo, it's nowhere near as much fun to hear.
But then, I'm horribly biased toward all things Banjo.
Been that way since I first heard Dave Guard's banjo break on the Kingston Trio's "MTA", back around 1959.
