Bluegrass Masters: Dobro

The dobro is sometimes seen as “optional” in bluegrass band lineups, but that reputation can obscure the fact that it is an awesome instrument with many champions. From bluegrass music’s inception, the dobro has been a driving force thanks to early virtuosos like Josh Graves and Bashful Brother Oswald—who arguably helped shape bluegrass as much as Earl Scruggs, Clarence White, and Bill Monroe did for their instruments. Nowadays, modern masters like Sally van Meter, Mike Witcher, and of course Jerry Douglas have slid the dobro into progressive bluegrass bands with ease.
