That high lonesome sound

The Stanley Brothers with Man of Constant Sorrow.  Well then, what is bluegrass?  As one of its pioneering artists, Bill Monroe, tells it:

Scottish bagpipes and ole-time fiddlin'. It's Methodist and Holiness and Baptist. It's blues and jazz, and it has a high lonesome sound. It's plain music that tells a good story. It's played from my heart to your heart, and it will touch you. Bluegrass is music that matters.
