Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

You can't get much more bluegrass than this, a song by the father of bluegrass, Bill Monroe, who created the genre. One night in the 1960s, Bill and his band were aboard their old bus "The Bluegrass Breakdown," when it lived up to its name somewhere in the middle of Kentucky.

Watching the sunrise over the mountains and inspired by what Bill called the ancient tones (the whispering in nature), Bill and his young bandmate Peter Rowan came up with this song.

When i moved to Kentucky after college in the70's, I used to visit music cafes in Lousiville.

One, in particular, that i liked to visit had bluegrass music on the first floor, and rock in the basement.

Those of us enjoying the bluegrass music on the first floor did not enjoy the rock music interfering from the basement. Eventually the owner stopped with th rock music because, as he told me, ~those who enjoy the bluegrass music drink more beer and that's where my profits are.~

That aside, bluegrass music is cool, I've always enjoyed it, especially when it moves into rock music.

This seems to be a rather specific Friday evening music thread so I don't want to hijack it.

But here is a fun tune...

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm not getting any sound.
