Style: Country : Contemporary Bluegrass
Greatest Album |  Greatest Artists |  Greatest Tracks
Contemporary Bluegrass developed during the '80s, when traditional bluegrass had incorporated the innovations of progressive bluegrass. It isn't as jazzy or experimental as progressive bluegrass -- sticking to familiar traditional forms -- but it is slightly less classicist than traditional bluegrass. Essentially, it is an updated and fresh version of bluegrass for modern times.
