bluegrass?
 
Anyone else enjoy the sensation of thrashing around in the pow with some sweet twangy-boogaloo? or am I nutty?

I love it. It might be because I am from the South and play the banjo :dunno: . Whenever I am cruising and a bluegrass song comes on I get super happy. Some people like reggae on pow days I love bluegrass. Are you into the old school bluegrass i.e. don reno, Smiley, Earl Scruggs or are you into new jam band bluegrass i.e. nitty gritty band, string cheese incident, and yonder mountain?

little of column A, little of column B

I'd say my taste is more for the old timey pickin but some of it can get a bit hokey, the vocals in particular. Some of the new stuff can be a bit redundant though, the String Cheese Incident comes to mind, some of it just keeps draggin on and on and it starts hurtin from a lack of substance.

Have you heard David Grisman's stuff? I'd say what I love the most is new artists (well the dude is old but he's no bill monroe) who take the old tyme sound and put their own spin on it.

A group you may want to check out is the creaking tree string quartet, they're outa Toronto so I'm not sure how well known they are down south. They do the newgrass thing with a bit of jazz/flamenco thrown in but a real tight and original sound.

Feel free to throw out some obscure names, I'm always lookin to find new stuff and I'm definatly no expert on the genre.

and for bluegrass noobs, i recomend the iron horse. they do a bunch of bluegrass covers of bands you've probably heard of. the modest mouse and green day ones are excellent!!!

Hell yea can you say OCMS, trampled by turtles and Tarnation~! Last winter when we were at Powder Mountain up by Ogden they had a killer BG band in the bar, good times.

Not bluegrass, but it incorporates it; I really dig Gangstagrass. Not all the tracks are great, but there are a few I think are killer even though I'm not usually a fan of mashups. I usually have a few of these in my playlist when riding.

Never heard of Gangstar grass before but if you like that you'll prob dig this,
Dixie Fried by Moccasin Creek.

Another great traditional sounding string band is PO DANK STRING BAND,check these guys out!! Ode to the Bitches, I feel Good, and Down South are a few of my favs!
