Exposing the far-reaching roots of Bluegrass deep within the musical foundation of America, curated by Tessa Lark. The show will pay homage to the “father of Bluegrass” Bill Monroe; examine the cross-pollination of Blues, Jazz and Northern European styles within Americana’s seedlings; showcase both modern-day and centuries-old musical masterworks inspired by folk idioms; and get into the weeds of Southern California’s further cultivation of Bluegrass by way of Vern Williams and many others.
