The Rose Ensemble (Michael Haug Photography)

A Journey through America’s Folk, Old-time, and Gospel Traditions

October 2013

Return to America’s folk roots. Rousing hymns, Appalachian foot-stomping songs, Southern Harmony shape-note singing, and Shaker spirituals: the music that gave birth to bluegrass. The Roots of Bluegrass explores our country’s musical heritage with close vocal harmonies, banjo, guitar, and fiddle.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
