What is Bluegrass?

Bluegrass music is a form of American folk and traditional music, with roots in the traditional music of the Appalachian Mountains. Although it can be connoted with Country music, its origins mirror the influences of Celtic music from the British Isles and African-American jazz and blues. They are mainly used stringed acoustic instruments, such as banjo, acoustic guitar, mandolin, resophonic guitar, fiddle (violin) and double bass. As in jazz, the instruments intersperse with the voice and take turns in solos and improvisations while the others do the accompaniment. The musical themes are approached in a cheerful way and with lyrics of different themes. The name originated in the state of Kentucky, in the interior of the United States, a state that is known as the state of Blue Grass (blue grass typical of this area). In Portugal, Stonebones & Bad Spaghetti are the band that best represents this style.
