Re: “Fifteen Years Later, Bluegrass Is Still Reeling from O Brother, Where Art Thou?

I appreciate the need for a focus word, but surely most of the music in "Oh, Brother" is from the era before Bluegrass (which, of course, was invented by Bill Monroe in the mid 1950's). We're talking about Old-Time or Mountain Music are we not? For me Bluegrass is the Punk to Old-time's Rock'n'Roll and Rhythm'n'Blues, and I can't listen to it for long. It's high-speed and samey to my ear, Where Old-Time is varied and goes straight to the heart and Soul, rather than the funny-bone. It seems the term Bluegrass has steamrollered over these other more subtle words and obliterated them - a pity...
