  Bluegrass (not called that at its first) is one of the three major veins out of which country western developed, folk and swing (originating via early jazz) the other two. As it isn't always possible to distinguish between genres except artificially, if what you're seeking isn't on this page you might find it in one of the other Country categories at the bottom of this page. All the blending aside, bluegrass in general emphasized instruments while folk emphasized song.

 

 
 

Among the earliest "bluegrass" recordings are those by fiddler Eck Robertson, releasing 'Sallie Gooden' in 1922.

Birth of Bluegrass Music: Uncle Dave Mason

Uncle Dave Macon

Like Carson, banjo player Uncle Dave Macon could feasibly be considered early folk music but for the skill he demonstrated with his instrument. Macon got together with fiddler Sid Harkreader to release a number of recordings in 1924 (three of which are below).

Birth of Bluegrass Music: Gid Tanner

Gid Tanner

Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers popularized "hillbilly" music in the twenties. (The authorship of 'Dixie', in the 1850's, to which this history points below is uncertain.) Blind guitarist Riley Puckett was a member of the Skillet Lickers, together with fiddler Clayton McMichen who also performed lead vocals. During the same period the Carter Family (Country 2) took country the folk direction.

Mandolinist Bill Monroe, who played a lot with Mainer, first recorded 'New River Train' in 1936 while working with his two brothers as the Monroe Brothers. He soon after formed the Blue Grass Boys, hence the "bluegrass" genre.

Rather the obverse of mining and trucking, country music more representing the trucker and miner than those industries, so did country more represent the railroad industry (: the train) than the railroad laborer (in general). Nevertheless, fiddler Chubby Wise, composer of 'The Orange Blossom Special', began his career in 1930 at age fifteen, playing local gigs in Jacksonville, Florida. He would join Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys in 1942, with which he made his first recordings (the original 'Bluegrass Breakdown', below, among them). Wise played with the Blue Grass Boys until 1948. In 1954 he joined Hank Snow's Rainbow Mountain Boys with which he remained until 1970.

It was New Year's day, 1939, that Beecher Ray Kirby joined the Grand Ole Opry with Roy Acuff's band. The members would soon be calling him Bashful Brother Oswald , recording for the first time in 1939 with Roy Acuff as well ('Old Age Pension Check'). Though Brother Oswald was a banjo, guitar and slide guitar wizard he played Dobro on that first recording. A resonating guitar, "Dobro" is a contraction of the "Dopyera brothers" who invented it, meaning "goodness" in their native Slovak. The Dopyeras would own Dobro throughout most the history of country, not acquired by Gibson until 1997. (More Roy Acuff in A Birth of Folk Music.)

Lester Flatt, guitarist and vocalist, got his major professional push with Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys in 1945. To mention Lester Flatt is nigh as to mention Earl Scruggs since they worked together for twenty years upon forming the Foggy Mountain Boys in 1948, which group enjoyed great popularity until disbanding in 1969.

Phenomenal banjoist Earl Scruggs also got his major career boost in 1945 with Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys. Scruggs is famous for 'Foggy Mountain Breakdown', first recorded in 1948, and 'The Ballad of Jed Clampett' in 1962, theme song for the television comedy 'The Beverly Hillbillies'.

Birth of Bluegrass Music: Arthur Smith

Arthur Smith

Arthur Smith released his first single in 1948 ('Banjo Boogie' with 'Guitar Boogie' flip side). (Boogie woogie, incidentally, is the southern equivalent of ragtime, the latter out of which jazz largely developed.) In 1955 Smith partnered with banjo player Don Reno to record 'Feudin' Banjos', which tune was later used in the 1972 film, 'Deliverance'. Smith is otherwise best known as television host of 'The Arthur Smith Show' which ran for about thirty years.

Mac Wiseman, guitar and upright bass, began his music career as a disc jockey for WSVA radio in Harrisonburg, Virginia, upon studying music at the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music. He began his career as a musician playing upright bass for country singer Molly O'Day. Wiseman first recorded soon after in 1948 with the Foggy Mountain Boys, formed that year by Earl Scruggs and Lester Flatt upon leaving the Blue Grass Boys (among those first recordings see 'Foggy Mountain Breakdown' under Earl Scruggs above). In 1949 he recorded 'Travelin' Down This Lonesome Road' and a couple duets with Bill Monroe (unfound) just prior to forming his own band that same year.

Vassar Clements, largely fiddle, first recorded with Bill Monroe in 1950, replacing fiddler Chubby Wise for the next eight years. But the first recording on which he appears that we could find is not until 1951, 'The First Whippoorwill'. He would not release his first album, 'Southern Country Waltzes',  until 1972 (unfound). His next album, 'Crossing the Catskills', was released the next year. Alike Chet Atkins, Vassar played a variety of genres.

Jimmy Martin

 

Farmboy Jimmy Martin was twenty-two when he snuck backstage at the Grand Ole Opry and got hired by Bill Monroe, replacing Mac Wiseman who had just left the band. (A guitarist, he also sings lead on the tracks below with the Blue Grass Boys.) Martin released his first record album in 1960 ('Good n Country'), steadily creating one album each year up to 1974 (excepting 1971), after which his LP releases were less regular. Unfortunately the earliest album recording found is not until 1964, the trucking tune 'Widow Maker'.

Guitarist Red Allen (not to be confused with the jazz trumpeter Henry James Red Allen) got his big break with the Osborne Brothers, first recording four songs with them in 1956 ('Once More' below, 'Ho Honey Ho' and 'Ruby Are You Mad?' under the Osborne Brothers above).

Dave Grisman

Mandolin player David Grisman (the Dawg) first recorded with the Even Dozen Jug Band in 1963. He later recorded with Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys before helping Peter Rowan form the psychedelic band, Earth Opera. Their first album, released in 1968, was titled simply 'Earth Opera'. Their second album, 'The Great American Eagle Tragedy', was released the next year. (Tracks from those albums are under Peter Rowan below.) Tracks below include collaborations with Jerry Garcia, Tony Rice and Doc Watson.

  Roscoe Holcomb didn't begin recording until 1958 (age 46) after about three decades of playing banjo while working as a coal miner and farmer. His first record release was in 1960 on a compilation called 'Mountain Music of Kentucky'. Holcomb was more a folk singer than bluegrass instrumentalist, but as he was from the Appalachian area of Kentucky and played in the bluegrass fashion he was better known at the time as a bluegrass vocalist than folk singer.

Blind bluegrass virtuoso Doc Watson had been playing banjo, guitar and harmonica nigh thirty years before recording his own debut album, titled simply 'Doc Watson', in 1964. Watson made his first recording with Clarence Ashley in 1961, thought to be 'The Banks of the Ohio', below.

Guitarist Peter Rowan got his big break in Nashville with Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys with which he first recorded in 1966. In 1967 he helped David Grisman shape the acid band, Earth Opera. Their first album, released in 1968, was titled simply 'Earth Opera'. Their second album, 'The Great American Eagle Tragedy', was released the next year. Rowan went on to become a member of numerous bands such as Seatrain, the Muleskinners and Old and In the Way, the latter with whom he played with Jerry Garcia, David Grisman and Vassar Clements. Rowan is perhaps most notable for his collaborations with mandolinist, David Grisman, and guitarist, Tony Rice. Many tracks with Tony Rice below. A couple of cuts from Rowan's reggae period are included below as well.

Birth of Bluegrass Music: John Hartford

John Hartford

Banjo player John Hartford also played dobro, fiddle, guitar and likely could have made a bare dowsing rod sing. Hartford was a commercial art student, receiving his degree in 1960. But the more compelling focus for Hartford was music. So he became a disc jockey in St. Louis where he'd been born while further honing his skills. He is said to have recorded for local labels in St. Louis in the early sixties but no records of that can be found. In 1965 Hartford moved to Nashville to be at the center of the country music industry, and signed his first recording contract the next year. 'Gentle On My Mind' was his first single, released in 1967, the same year as his first album, 'Looks At Life'. One track from his 1971 album, 'Aereo-Plain', is indexed below, upon which release people began calling his bluegrass "newgrass" or, progressive bluegrass (a term used in the naming of the New Grass Revival band formed in 1971, a touch too late for this history just yet). Hartford had a thing about steamboats as well. In addition to his music career, he earned a steamboat pilot license in the seventies, thereafter piloting the Julia Belle Swain for summer amusement, as well as tugboats.

But we presently pause this rather lean history of bluegrass music with John Hartford.
