Bluegrass music is a sub-genre of country music that consists primarily of influences from the country, blues, jazz, and celtic genres. Bluegrass artists often employ the use of banjos, acoustic guitars, mandolins, fiddles, and resonator guitars in their music in order to produce a sound that is considered folky and distinctly American. The origins of Bluegrass can be traced to 1945 and the Blue Grass Boys, led by the late Bill Monroe. The addition of the banjo to Monroe's band gave way to a new style that fans consider to be the heir of pre-1940s country music. Modern bluegrass artists include Terrance Simien and Alison Krauss.
Since the development of bluegrass, two distinct forms have emerged. Traditional bluegrass aims to stay true to the genre as it was developed in the mid 1940s, using only acoustic instruments, playing folk songs, and keeping the lyrics simple. Progressive bluegrass, or newgrass, uses some traditional elements but also borrows from other genres such as rock and jazz. Newgrass artists often include instruments such as drums, the piano, and the electric guitar, and may also use more complex themes and lyrics from other types of music. Recently, bluegrass has undergone a resurgence in popularity, with artists such as Patty Loveless and Dolly Parton recording songs in the style.
