    Im all over the place with my music since I get bored easily.I grow tired of Classic Rock,Blues,Metal,Alternative,etc.,and theres just hardly not any good music out lately.Ive always dug Bluegrass/Folk,but lately its all Ive been listening to.Something about the banjos,fiddles,guitars,mandolin,and those harmonies that just grab me.I know its kind of a lost genre and ppl either dig it or loathe it.Some of it gets kinda twangy and you have to be in the mood for it,but if you give it a chance youll hear some really cool stuff.

    Gillian Welch and David Rawlings

    Seldom Scene ( Duffy really made this band and was a great musician/singer)

    Avett Brothers ( Love these guys,Missed a chance to go see them Sunday because of work) They are really all over the place with their music and have become kinda mainstream the past couple of years

    I love the music but sometimes the singing makes me cringe. I've always enjoyed Nickel Creek. They don't over do it.
