Growing up, my dad and his friends would sit on our front porch until the early hours of the morning playing bluegrass music. Most Saturday nights when I was young, my dad would drive the family to an old school house way out in the country where groups of people would be in circles "picking bluegrass." To say that I didn't really appreciate this kind of music then would be an understatement.
In the past ten years though, my perception of this kind of music has changed. The Avett Brothers are one of those bands that has brought bluegrass music into a modern day and they have gained rapid fire popularity. Read more about them in a recent issue of Garden & Gun magazine.
