 High Lonesome: The Story of Bluegrass Music (54 min)
Weaving haunting archival footage and photographs from the 1930s and 40s with toe-tapping live performances, the film traces the origins of bluegrass music from the Kentucky hills of Appalachia through the innovations which shaped its current form. The film provides on-camera commentary by bluegrass greats including Mac Wiseman and Jimmy Martin, as well as rarely seen tapes of Flatt and Scruggs, both of whom played with Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys.
