Bluegrass, mountain music, its high lonesome sound, deeply rooted with influence from Ireland, Scotland and England as well as African Americans, songs from simple folk with hearts as big as the country they came to settle. Poor white trash that left an undying legacy to music the world over, all this and more from a people whom the governments of the world wanted to eradicate from the pages of history, considered unfit and uneducated? A romantic fantasy perhapsâ€¦but i somehow feel a sense of belonging when i hear the music.
