"With retail sales of the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack exceeding 6.5 million copies since its release in the year 2000, bluegrass music has re-entered the spotlight as a major American style, spawning huge successes with subsequent albums. Author Stephanie P. Ledgin has captured the rich history of this music in Homegrown Music, a lively, informative book that is perfect for newcomers and devoted fans, musicians and non-musicians. Though recognized and embraced internationally, bluegrass is one of only a few musical genres native to America and, like jazz, it boasts a colorful and lively history, one that is captured here in all its detail complete with candid interviews with such legends as Earl Scruggs, Ralph Stanley, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band."--BOOK JACKET.
