2:42 - History of Bluegrass Music



[ purchase ] Mark Twang by John Hartford

John Hartford: Tater Tate and Allen Mundy

Before the switch you have to hear this track by John Hartford, in which he squeezes a concise history of the best pickers to 2 minutes 42 seconds, and still has time to sing a little about the joys of bluegrass in general. From Mark Twang, a one-man album featuring John on banjo, fiddle, floorboard, hambone, vocals, and mouth effects.
