The inside story on the Father of Bluegrass from one of his Blue Grass Boys

About the Author

Bob Black played banjo as one of Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys and recorded with him on the Weary Traveler album. Black later played for several years with Buck White and the Down Home Folks. He appears on a number of fiddle albums by Kenny Baker and has performed with Ricky Skaggs, Ralph Stanley, Rhonda Vincent, Marty Stuart, Frank Wakefield, John Hartford, the Whites, and other artists. He currently lives near Iowa City, where he performs in Perfect Strangers, the Banjoy Band, and other groups. He has published articles in Bluegrass Unlimited and in 2002 received the Iowa Arts Council's Traditional Arts Award. Neil Rosenberg studies contemporary vernacular music traditions, including the music and lives of bluegrass, country and folk musicians in Canada and the United States. He is the author of Bluegrass: A History.

Reviews

"I believe Bob Black is the best playing fiddle tunes of any banjo player." Bill Monroe "Being a bluegrass banjo player and Monroe fan for most of my life, I found it easy to project myself into the situations and encounters that Black describes... This is a stimulating and thoroughly enjoyable book that I would recommend to anyone interested in Monroe's music." Tom Adler, folklorist and bluegrass historian
