Monday’s Washington Post included a special feature by Jedd Ferris, who explores the bluegrass scene in and around Nashville.
Ferris, the managing editor of Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine in Charlottesville, VA, reminds readers about the historic links between bluegrass and Music City and points out that those links are stronger now with many well-known bluegrass personality being residents in the region. Of course, the IBMA also has its offices in the city’s Music Row district.
Additionally, he visits three of the best-known venues famous for presenting bluegrass music, the Ryman Auditorium, the Station Inn, both in downtown Nashville, and, further afield, central Tennessee’s Cumberland Caverns, home of the concert series, Bluegrass Underground.
