Dawg Plays Big Mon - A Not So Ordinary Tribute to Bill Monroe

Dawg Plays Big MonSeptember was the centennial of the Father of Bluegrass Music who was born 100 years ago this year. Many tribute albums were making the round and there was some great music to be shared. But, one album, stands alone. A not so ordinary tribute by an artist who lives on the edge of bluegrass -- the master mandolinist David "Dawg" Grisman. Dawg Plays Bog Mon - Happy Birthday Bill Monroe has the soul of bluegrass along with the high-lonesome sound and it is performed by some of the best in bluegrass music. This album probably should get 11 stars out of 10!

David Grisman Honors Bill Monroe with 'Dawg Plays Big Mon'

Dawg Plays Big MonOn a Sunday morning in 1961, Ralph Rinzler invited 16-year old David Grisman to hear Bill Monroe and his Blue Grass Boys play at New River Ranch in Rising Sun, Maryland. That experience changed David's life and profoundly affected the musical journey he would take for the next half-century.
