Authors: Oriol Sana and Lluis Gomez
Format: Book with Audio Online
Instrumentation: Violin
Level: Intermediate

The endlessly energetic duo of Oriol Sana and Lluis Gomez have created a charming and informative account of the musical phenomenon we call bluegrass. Originally a quirky supercharged folk music played by about ten people, bluegrass music, with its Mozart-like formality and ferocious rhythmic zest, now describes an extended international family of related string band styles.

Master fiddler Oriol and bluegrass banjoist Lluis, both acclaimed educators, present both the wide view and crucial details about this music in a clear, personable manner. Bravo!

Includes access to online audio.
