Hooked on Bluegrass

Trevor Smith

Bluegrass is music that people play with instruments like the dobro, mandolin, guitar, fiddle, stand up bass, and banjo! I heard about Bluegrass when my dad started playing guitar and went to jams! A jam is when people get together and sing and play Bluegrass tunes! Tunes is another word for musical songs!

When I was four I sang my first Bluegrass song with my brother Calvin! The song was "Blue Moon of Kentucky". Lots of times we go up on stage and sing our Bluegrass songs at festivals in front of 2,000 to 3,000 people watching and listening, but we aren't scared because we've done it lots of times and we're used to it now. I love Bluegrass!
