Mankato Events Dick Kimmel History Of Bluegrass
History of Bluegrass Music
Bluegrass music boasts a rich history and worldwide popularity. Still, many people are not aware of this uniquely American art form. Kimmel's program includes live music, instrument demonstrations, and historic recordings by some of the genre's pioneers.  He cover's bluegrass from its roots in the 'string-bands' of the 19th century, the commercialization of traditional country music during the 1920's, the development of the 'bluegrass sound' in the 1940's by the Father of Bluegrass - Bill Monroe, to the bluegrass artists that are popular today.
