Seldom Scene, Country Gentlemen and Old And In The Way... didn't someone create the term "Newgrass" for groups like them? Allison Krauss has certainly been commercially successful bringing bluegrass into country, even with a little touch of Rhythm and Blues.

Anyone know anything about The Isaacs? I hadn't heard them until tonight and they sound more "mountain" to me. What is "mountain?"
I guess I'm trying to say that the approach to the songs sounds less formulaic than some of the more traditional groups, but now "New", either. It sounds more like older mountain music to me.
