Bluegrass Instrumentals

With the weather starting to feel a bit more like spring, I've been planning a few road trips to enjoy soon. One of the advantages of living along the Piedmont Breaks is that it is a short drive east to the Chesapeake Bay or the Atlantic, or west to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Fortunately, I don’t have to choose one over the other, as either is close enough for a weekend getaway. As the spring festival season gets in full swing I plan to spend many weekends in the mountains, listening to some great live music.

You may have noticed, if you’ve been riding the Bus for a while, that I tend to lean towards the Old Time camp when it comes to mountain music. Every once in a while I get a hunger for some good Bluegrass to balance things out. Lately, I’ve been in one of those Bluegrass moods. Let’s get the Bus back on the road with a few instrumentals from the golden age of Bluegrass.
