Enjoyed reading the first part folks. A really great album I picked up a while back was Marty Stuart's 'Once Upon a Time', from back when he was Lester's little mandolin monkey. It's some kind of hot pickin'.

"Purist" would have been the more polite term, I admit. Here's a question for the bg purists. -- "My pretty little gal in the hills of ..." fill in a state here. Which states would be acceptable to mention in a bluegrass song? How far west, how far north? What about Kentucky or West Virginia, which were Union states. -- Johnny in Oklahoma City

Well, banjo player Richard Hood wrote a wonderful bluegrass tune called "New Hampshire" that just makes you want to live free or die. And around these parts we're partial to Greg Brown's "The Iowa Waltz." Don't forget the Carter Family singing about "the hills of Minnesota where the rippling waters fall." I'm pretty sure folks throughout Missouri and Arkansas think their home states are included and don't try telling the people in southern Indiana and Ohio they aren't part of the deal.

Dry Branch Fire Squad recorded "Faded Coat of Blue," which is obviously about the North.

Catfish John - isn't that the delta in Mississippi?

Alabama Waltz, Kentucky Waltz, Connecticut Waltz (OK, no fair, I wrote the last one, but we do it as bluegrass)

Little Georgia Rose

Hills That I Call Home, by Bob Amos (New Hampshire)

Banks of the Ohio

Arkansas Traveller

Boston Boy

Westphalia Waltz (where is that, anyhow?)

Westphalia, Texas I believe is the place for which the waltz is named. Being a displaced Oregonian, every time I hear those songs about "Mah home in Caroline" or especially "My Blueridge Mountain Home" I just get all choked up thinking about my Cascade Mountain home. Now there's a bluegrass song.

I know we all expected to hear from the Confederate States, but it's interesting to note so many votes for New Hampshire and Oregon. These are beautiful states, actually more beautiful than plain old Oklahoma. Funny, nobody mentioned Waltz Across Texas. Connecticut Waltz, let's see, how does that go ... ? Johnny in OKC

Johnny, I actually thought of "Waltz Across Texas" but couldn't remember ever hearing it in a bluegrass context. Beautiful tune though. All the western states have great cowboy, western and western swing tunes about them. I can listen to that music for hours.

I never realised that some folks had the idea that bluegrass was strictly southern United States property. Is bluegrass played by other people in other parts of the world still bluegrass??

cheers,

Aux

"My pretty little gal in the hills of gay Paree"- Probably still bluegrass but perhaps loses a little punch. :)

It runs in my mind that Bill Monroe used Minneapolis as a base for some period of time. Surely that must have "consecrated" the upper midwest.
