Songs of The South

While bluegrass is now enjoyed around the country and around the world, it’s no secret that the genre has deep southern roots. Bill Monroe was from Kentucky, Lester Flatt was from Tennessee, and Earl Scruggs was from North Carolina after all! Those southern ties reflect strongly in bluegrass’s past and present repertoires—and you’d be hard pressed to make it to a bluegrass jam without hearing “Blue Moon of Kentucky” or “Little Girl of Mine in Tennessee”. With entries from Country Gazette, the Boxcars, and the Seldom Scene, enjoy this playlist of bluegrass’s songs of the south!
