A musical style that originated with Bill Munroe in the late 1930's. Unlike mainstream country music, bluegrass relies mostly on acoustic stringed instruments, including the fiddle, played with more improvisation and flashiness.
This style is primarily meant for a listening audience, rather than a dance floor.
