What began as a high lonesome sound from a farmer with a mandolin and a high tenor voice has grown into a genre of music that spreads across the globe and connects people from all walks of life. This community of preservers, innovators, and enthusiasts has given us over seven decades of powerful music, honest lyrics, and a place to belong - in addition to a few iconic stories. Throughout 2020, we hope you will join us in celebrating the past, present, and future of this wonderful music we love so much. We encourage you to use this logo along with #BG75 to share your favorite bluegrass music and memories.
