Bluegrass is a unique genre of music whose origins rise from the cultural intersection of the Appalachian Mountain region (with influences including but not limited to African American, Scotch-Irish, traditional). It is characterized by the use of specific instruments (banjo, guitar, dobro, bass, mandolin) and harmonies, generation of a raw, acoustic sound, and themes of hardship and nostalgia. Bluegrass serves as the foundation of country and folk music and continues to inspire musicians from across every genre today.
