The official web site for The Recording Academy, formerly The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, who distributes the annual Grammy Awards, has a nice piece up on the 40th Anniversary issue of Bluegrass Unlimited magazine. It was written by Dave Helland, and includes a brief overview of the magazine, and how it came into existence in 1966.
Helland includes quotes from founder, Pete Kuykendall, and from newgrass legend, Sam Bush.
“No one loves traditional bluegrass more then Pete does,” says Sam Bush, who bought his first issue of Bluegrass Unlimited at the second Roanoke Bluegrass Festival in Virginia. “At the same time, no one has been more supportive of young bands that come out and try to make their own sound.”
