#tbt and happy birthday to George Glazer! We’ve dug up a vintage photo from the vault of the young George with the “Father of Bluegrass” Bill Monroe at a bluegrass festival way back when, which seems topical since bluegrass has been in the news this week: Ken Burns’ “Country Music” documentary debuted this week on PBS and comedian and bluegrass aficionado Steve Martin just announced in presenting the latest recipient of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass that he and the prize board members are overwhelmed by the sheer number of qualified musicians as bluegrass is having a resurgence in popularity. George played banjo in a number of bluegrass bands in high school and college. #billmonroe #countrymusic #bluegrass #bluegrassmusic

Well, that was fun! Staff concert at @stationinn1974 before the annual @monroemandocamp. Thanks to Chris Lewis and @herzog.heidi for the photos - and to all the great musicians for a memorable night! @rickyskaggs, Mike Compton, Todd Phillips, @tammy_rogersking, Charlie Cushman, and MANY others. The spirit of #billmonroe was strong!
No better event anywhere than the Jerusalem Ridge Bluegrass Celebration at the homeplace of bluegrass founder Bill Monroe. As fun as it was to perform there over the weekend, it was even more fun to make music with friends on Bill's old porch. If you love bluegrass, you've got to put Rosine, Kentucky on your bucket list. It's definitely worth the trip! #bluegrass #billmonroe #bigmon #mountainhighway #tradition | @ghsstrings | @ruefarms | @shubbcapos

We couldn’t leave western Kentucky without paying our respects to Big Mon and two of his greatest influences - his uncle Pendleton Vandiver and African American thumb-style guitarist, Arnold Shultz. We have had the good fortune to visit the Rosine Cemetery a number of times now, but this was the first chance we have had to visit the grave of Arnold Shultz. It was a sobering experience.• • • • #thepricesisters #rebelrecords #bigmon #billmonroe #thebluegrass #music #kentucky #americanmusic #folkmusic #legends #masters #influencers #folklife #mandolin #fiddle #guitar #bigmon #bluegrass #unclepen #rosine

Chris Hillman and Herb Pederson concert Friday night. I was 5th wheel with #Terramar surf buddies Bill Huelsman, Phil Meuse and their wives Kim and Peggy. Fun evening. Chris has lost a step since last summers triumphant tour celebrating SOTR50th anniversary but when he harmonized with his friend Herb of over 50 years the magic still happens. So much history. Stoked they still visit San Diego yearly to play some great songs and tell stories of how some of the music came together. #byrds #flyingburritobrothers #desertroseband #southerhillmanfurayband #manassas #thedillards #dillardandclark #eagles #csny #danfogelberg #emmylouharris #billmonroe #billbryson #laurelcanyonramblers #martystuartandhisfabuloussuperlatives #bobdylan #tompetty #gramparsons #rockandrollhalloffame #countrymusichalloffame #cosmicamericanmusic 🎸🎶🏄🤙

Posted @withrepost@americansongwritermagazine The Blue Ridge Mountains extend from just north of Atlanta to just west of Gettysburg, and through the green valleys on the ridge’s western flank marched Union and Confederate armies to some of the Civil War’s most pivotal battles: Chickamauga, Chattanooga, Cedar Creek, Antietam and Gettysburg. Filmmaker Ken Burns brought those battles to life in his 1990 documentary series The Civil War. It’s still his most popular film, even more than 1994’s Baseball, 2001’s Jazz or 2017’s The Vietnam War. Burns returns to those same oak-carpeted slopes in his new series Country Music, something of a sequel to The Civil War. In Bristol, Tennessee, near the mountain range’s midpoint, the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers made their first recordings in 1927 and launched modern country music. From the nearby hills came such seminal figures as the Stanley Brothers, Earl Scruggs, Ricky Skaggs, Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn. **** The first of eight episodes of "Country Music: A Film by Ken Burns" will begin airing on @PBS tonight. Read our feature on the documentary on americansongwriter.com. #countrymusic #johnnycash #grandoleopry #billmonroe @kenburnspbs
It’s always a pleasure for us to perform at Jerusalem Ridge. Call it what you want, but there’s something about playing music up among these hills and treetops that makes the instruments sound that much sweeter.• • • • #thepricesisters #rebelrecords #jerusalemridge #rosine #kentucky #thebluegrass #billmonroe #bigmon #homeplace #festival #themonroebrothers #bluegrass #music #americanmusic #folklife

Apparently being 24 years old is extremely uncomfortable. Had a great birthday full of Blue Grass Music and homemade books about hillbilly music. Also, got to visit Bill Monroe’s Birthplace on his birthday, which I’ve always been proud of sharing, and it was every bit as powerful as I’d imagined. ⏩⏩Scroll all the way for the greatest painting of all time.⏩⏩ #uncomfortable #birfdayboi #thebluegrass #billmonroe #charliemonroe #kentucky #thehigherthebritchesthehigherthelonesome

Barry and myself tackle the snake that is “Jerusalem Ridge”. Written by Bill Monroe back in the day . This is Tony Rice’s version from YouTube. I would like to thank the slowdown function on YouTube for this video and being single which granted me the time to learn such an epic.

Happy 108th Birthday to the man behind this music, Bill Monroe. There’d be no Blue Grass music if it weren’t for Bill. We hope audiences can always hear how important Monroe’s sound is to us every time we play. Thank you Big Mon for the music we love, and for all the inspiration we still feel from it today. And remember, there’s no mandolin like Monroe mandolin! Thank you to our friend Frank Godbey for sharing his photo with us. 📸 • • • • #thepricesisters #rebelrecords #happybirthday #billmonroe #bigmon #legend #bluegrass #music #thebluegrass #kentucky #americanmusic #folklife #birthdayboy #happyvibes #celebrate
