Homegrown Music by Stephanie P. Ledgin

Book Description

"Homegrown Music: Discovering Bluegrass" is an introductory primer directed at the newcomer to bluegrass that also provides a novel perspective for those already captivated by the music. It covers the history of the genre's development in a relaxed style, from its predecessors to its innovators. Touching on important personalities, past and present, the book gives a nod to young artists on the horizon, as well as those from the international scene. Other topics include instrumentation, songs, the festival experience, and "parking lot picking." Candid interviews with such legends as Earl Scruggs, Ralph Stanley, and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band are included, as is an extensive resource guide to print, audio-visual, and Internet materials. The book is enriched by twenty-five photographs taken by the author, and features a foreword by superstar Ricky Skaggs.
