Listen and Learn

We love bluegrass music…not only because it’s enjoyable to listen to and fun to play, but also because the history associated with the genre and songs is really interesting.

We introduced our Listen and Learn program to share the music — and the information — at local libraries and similar venues. Our program is entertaining, educational and family-friendly.

Our set list includes bluegrass standards and some of our own original songs. In between the songs, we share fun facts about how bluegrass started, bluegrass instrumentation, typical song structure, how a bluegrass jam works, and background about the songs and tunes we play.

For a little taste of our program, take a look at the videos below.

If you’re a library director and would like us to bring our program to your library, please go to our Contact page and send us a message. We’ll be happy to work with you to tailor our program to meet your needs.

If you’re a bluegrass fan, please come see us at an upcoming show. See our Shows page for listings.
