Originally frowned upon, this hillbilly music started to gain a new following of people who had never known the morning mist in a hollow. Bluegrass had moved to the city! By the early 1960's, Washington D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland had become the center of the Bluegrass music world. The Country Gentlemen, The Seldom Scene, Red Smiley, Bill Harrell, The Bluegrass Cardinals... the 40 mile stretch from Baltimore to Washington was fertile ground for some of the best bluegrass had to offer.
The musical migration had started. First to other cities throughout North America, then across the oceans to Japan and Europe.
