Bluegrass music

Jump to last reply

I was just listening to bluegrass music (on a station that mostly plays classical), and I was thinking that it has a totally country sound. Very distinctive, and very raw.

I wondered if Europeans ever listen to bluegrass music, and if they do, what they think of it.

When I lived in Germany in the 60's, I went to a concert of African American gospel music, and remember how surprised I was to see how appreciative Germans were of gospel music.

I guess I was less surprised a couple of years ago to hear country music in a taxicab in Ireland. The driver said his favorite country singers were Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers.
