Hooked on Bluegrass

Esther House

My story is a little different. I met Steve on a BBS (bulletin board system--pre-Internet) years ago. As we began to know each other Steve mentioned he loved bluegrass music. I asked, “Bluegrass? Is that what you play when you’re stoned?” (not to say I knew anyone who did.) I knew I had heard the music but never had a name for it.

As our relationship developed so did my love for the music. I went to my first festival in Half Moon Bay and I was hooked. That summer we went to my first Grass Valley Festival. Hooked was not the word.....I could not get enough of those fabulous sounds. The following year we were married and I have been going to as many events as possible.
