Subject: RE: Help: the 'invention' of bluegrass
Sorry to pick a nit, but my understanding is that the musical genre was named after Monroe's band, the Blue Grass Boys. The band name, of course, came from Kentucky being the Bluegrass State, but the music was named after the band, not after the state's nickname.
