Bluegrass Brothers, Sisters, and Families

It’s all about family for plenty of history’s—and today’s—best bluegrass bands. From the proto-bluegrass legends of the Carter Family to foundational groups like the Stanley Brothers, sharing family ties was a key aspect of the genre’s early days. Today, that sentiment still runs richly through bluegrass: whether it’s brothers Spinney or Gibson or Kreuger, bluegrass siblings and families make some of the best music out there. Enjoy this playlist of bluegrass brothers, sisters, and families!
