Hard Workin’ Bluegrass – A Playlist

Whether it’s down in the mines, on the farm, or on the railroad line, some of bluegrass music’s best songs celebrate (or bellyache) about working life. Makes sense for a genre with such blue collar roots! Some songs on this list dive deep into the deeper meanings and cultures of working in trades in the south and west, while others like Balsam Range’s “Blue Collar Dreams” and Town Mountain’s “Up the Ladder” feature subtle anti-capitalist undertones. Enjoy this playlist of hard workin’ bluegrass!
