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.

Presented by Scott Paulin
