No single figure in American music so dominated a genre as did Bill Monroe with bluegrass. Bill Monroe: Father of Bluegrass Music features performances by Bill Monroe & the Blue Grass Boys, Lester Flatt, Emmylou Harris, Paul McCartney, the Osborne Brothe

Don't buy this one , if you own Father of Bluegrass from 1999. This is the same DVD, with a litte diffrent frontcover.

Format: DVD
Bill Monroe: Father of Bluegrass Music is the DVD documentary of legendary musician Bill Monroe, credited with creating bluegrass from a fusion of fiddle tunes, Scotch-Irish ballads he learned from his mother and uncle, and "old Southern blues" taught to him by black blues guitarist Arnold Schultz. Bill Monroe: Father of Bluegrass Music pays tribute to this one-of-a-kind composer with interviews, archival footage including rare 1990s performances that Monroe gave in his final years, backstage glimpses of Monroe at the Grand Ole Opry, and much more. An absolute "must-see" for bluegrass fans and players everywhere. 90 minutes.

I loved Bill Monroe, "Father of Bluegrass", I've watched it many times and don't get tired of it. Having John Hartford and a young Del McCoury on it was a plus! I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys classic bluegrass and Bill Monroe, it keeps him and his wonderful music alive in our hearts. His high lonesome songs to his jigs that make you feel like dancing are entertaining. I regret that I never got to see him perform in person!

This docu focuses on the man himself rather than bluegrass in general. It is quite intimate and gives him his due regard. He's no longer with us of course so I treasure this.

This dvd Bill Monroe, Father of Bluegrass, found very interesting / informative on the history of his life & his influence on music. With interviews by previous band members & others that knew him really made it special, plus with all the songs that were performed. Also along with this, the dvd High Lonesome, great to have also on the beginning of country / bluegrass music.
