Oops, All Old-Time Playlist!

Hey, you got old-time in my bluegrass!” Old-time music, like bluegrass, is the combination of centuries of influence from Scotland and Africa—yet it’s still uniquely American. In old-time, instrumentalists don’t take solos as they would in bluegrass, meaning that energy builds from the beginning of a tune to its end with the help of the whole ensemble. On this list, hear bluegrassers gone old-timing like Adam Steffey and Darol Anger, plus learn some new names like Rayna Gellert and Rob Stenson. Enjoy this all old-time playlist!
