Bluegrass photo videos on YouTube

Award-winning photojournalist Stephanie P. Ledgin has created a video montage of some of her images of bluegrass and roots music artists, and posted it on YouTube. She created two versions of the video, one with a bluegrass music track, and another with rockin’ dance audio.

Ledgin’s most recent book is Homegrown Music – Discovering Bluegrass, released in October 2006, an introduction to the music, and the people who play it. She had previously released From Every Stage, Images of America’s Roots Music, which contains 200 photos of bluegrass, folk, blues, Cajun, Celtic and early country icons in 128 pages.

Photos from her books have been exhibited at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, at Lincoln Center in New York, and many are available to purchase as custom prints.

UPDATE 2/8/07: Stephanie emailed with a few minor corrections to the info above:

Homegrown Music was originally released in 2004 in hardcover, the photo book (From Every Stage) released in 2005, and Homegrown Music was just re-released in Oct 2006 in paperback. So indeed it is my most recent release, but technically it is a revised re-release (and a different publisher than the original).
