\u2022Bluegrass originated from dance music and ballads from Ireland,
Scotland, and England. It also came from African American gospel
\u2022Early Bluegrass songs were created by people living in rural areas.
Therefore the songs reflected their day to day living on the farm.
This type of music was called \u201cmountain music\u201d or \u201ccountry music\u201d.
\u2022One of the earlier bands was called \u201cBill Monroe and the Blue
Grass Boys\u201d. This band opened the gates for modern Bluegrass
\u2022The sound of Bluegrass was set in stone in 1945 by Earl Scruggs
with the introduction of three-fingered picking style on the banjo.
This skill is now called \u201cScruggs style\u201d banjo.
