"What Do You Like To Listen To?" Poll Says Traditional Bluegrass!

Once again, traditional bluegrass won the day. The question was asked in a member poll from the IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Assoc.).

With 45% of the votes, it's clear that many still prefer their 'grass the old school, hardcore way - the same way in which Bill, Earl and Lester saw it.

31% decided  were down the middle, with eclectic tastes that sometimes skew a bit north of Newgrass but south of that high lonesome sound.

Many in this group mentioned bands like the Steep Canyon Rangers, the Infamous Stringdusters and the great Tony Rice.

Just 10% said they were progressives, enjoying the new and evolving sounds that build on tradition but aren't afraid to jump off the railroad tracks.

The Punch Brothers and Greensky Bluegrass were repeated favorites from that group
