ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

(bluegrass music)

- I mean I think of bluegrass as like

one of those very, sort of ingrained,

American things like baseball.

- I just fell in love with bluegrass

when I first heard it as a teenager.

- When I heard Earl Scruggs, man that did it for me.

- To hear a banjo and a fiddle

and a bass back there just driving it, and a guitar.

- Wow, what is that?
