Hard Drivin’ Bluegrass in B

When I head to a jam, I always have my capo at the ready—there’s never been a picking’ party I’ve been to without a couple tunes in the key of B! The key of Bluegrass is a hard one to sing in, but this week’s playlist includes some of the most powerful singers in the business: Dolly Parton, Russell Moore, Dan Tyminski, and the Gibson Brothers, plus some drivin’ instrumentals from Butch Baldissari and Sierra Hull. Put those capos on the fourth fret and pick along to this playlist of hard-driving bluegrass music in B!
