Bluegrass Songbook

The Essential Bluegrass and Old-Time SongbookHi,

Scott Atkinson here. Some of you may know me from my time at Sing Out! Folk Music Magazine (I was there from 2000-2006. I was the Managing Editor and manned the booth at IBMA, Winfield, Merlefest, and other places.)

I’ve been out of the scene for a year or two, but am getting back in. I am now publishing roots music songbooks as World Street Press and just released my first volume: The Essential Bluegrass and Old-Time Songbook.

It contains 50 traditional songs: rare gems and old favorites alike. (Melodies, chord charts, lyrics, song origins.)

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to check out the site: there’s a copy of the Table of Contents and song examples. (Plus a special offer to celebrate the book’s release.)

I’m excited about getting back into the scene and look forward to running into some of you online and elsewhere. Please visit us at
