Bill Monroe Songs

Included here are but a fraction of the number of tunes written and performed by the “Father of Bluegrass”, over his nearly 70 year career. Bill Monroe is credited with creating the ensemble, and the sound, that we have all come to know as bluegrass music. The term for Bluegrass music derives from his band, assembled during the 1940’s, “Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys”, which was named in honor of his home state of Kentucky, “where the bluegrass grows”.
