Pandora now offers bluegrass genre

Pandora has launched a new wrinkle for its personalized online radio service. Listeners can now build a stream based on more than 100 “micro-genres,” including bluegrass.

Pandora users have always been able to create a bluegrass stream, but based on the names of favorite artists. The system would then suggest a series of tracks which you could enjoy in turn, or skip between as you see fit. The newly-revised service allows the listener to select by musical style. Bluegrass is listed in the broader folk category, along with Old Time and Americana. You can also find the bluegrass sub in the Country style.

Pandora Internet Radio is a free service, but registration is required. Check it out online.
