The show is called the Bluegrass Review because it reviews bluegrass music. As we begin a new year of shows, we seek grounding in the music’s history. The history of bluegrass music is one of evolution and revolution. The Gem of Bluegrass feature tells that bluegrass was considered to be very different than other forms of country music. The innovations of the father of bluegrass music, Bill Monroe, were revolutionary. You might say that some of the changes in the 1960’s and 1970’s were a mix of revolution and evolution, and the innovations that followed more evolution than anything else. The broadcast surveys some of the most important changes throughout its history.
