Countdown to IBMA World of Bluegrass

THE LATEST

Our latest bluegrass bunkum

"At the risk of offending, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen is a Marmite band, an informal British-based term meaning in this case that you either like their line-muddying, boundary-pushing, refuses-to-be-pigeonholed brand of bluegrass or you don’t... however you class their take on the genre, the quartet, collectively the IBMA’s Instrumental Group of the Year in 2016 (they sing as well, by the way), let their instruments speak for themselves, and speak they do. I guess that’s why I hit record on my camera. Three times, for three choice morsels, you could say." >>> MORE

Bluegrass is a wonderful music. I'm glad I originated it.

TOURS

Our tours to date

I hope the mygrassisblue.com team will be recognized in some manner by the International Bluegrass Music Association. They are working very hard to fulfill the first letter of the IBMA acronym in their home base in Ireland. They are taking bluegrass to an international level by hosting many shows and respecting the roots of our music. A wonderful organization.

Musings from the bluegrass past, the bluegrass crowd and the bluegrass trail

Tom T. Hall | Olive Hill, KY | Bluegrass Trails

"Portions of the Carter County town of Olive Hill, KY ... were as quiet as we’d come to expect from rural Kentucky, but the town is both big enough (population over 1,500) to boast some activity and its residents curious enough to approach us wondering what on earth we obvious out-of-towners were doing poking around somewhere like Olive Hill. “Blame Tom T.”, we said. "Who else?”

Ricky Skaggs | Europe 1985

"Only a 9-year-old me would have the gumption to solicit Ricky’s attention mid-set during the Dublin leg of his 1985 European tour, his first tour as a bandleader at the height of his 1980's country success and a tour that would spawn an album, 'Live In London', that would leave an indelible impression on me.”

The bluegrass community... can be very strict. I didn't know if I'd be welcomed into the bluegrass community or not, but I think they judge you very fairly... I felt really welcome.
