Hooked on Bluegrass

Peter Barnato

How I got started on Bluegrass? Loved Celtic music growing up in England and when I moved to Upstate New York in 1975 I just really got interested in the relationship to American Roots Music. Moved to Ensign, Kansas in 1980 and found a great Bluegrass Jam that became a regular thing, then came Winfield, then came California and Grass Valley in 1984 and here I am at McGrath's!

Been a regular thing for the Bluegrass community ever since! It was always my dream to have a venue for the Bluegrass folks and it seems to have worked out in a large part due to the CBA.
