In today’s fact we learn about Bluegrass! Mr. Toes teaches us how immigrants influenced a new style of music in the USA.
The Fact a Day:
Did you know that…Bluegrass history begins with Irish, Scottish, and English immigration to the USA during the 1600’s who brought the basic styles that eventually became bluegrass. But what we know today as bluegrass was first heard in 1945 with Earl Scruggs, Lester Flatt & Bill Monroe thanks to the three-finger picking style of the banjo.
