James Reams Funding Pioneers of Bluegrass Music with Kickstarter

Pioneers of Bluegrass MusicJames Reams introduces his project, Pioneers of Bluegrass Music saying, "In early 2002, I was sitting in my office in Brooklyn and realized what a loss the bluegrass community had suffered recently with the deaths of so many legends like Benny Martin, Jim McReynolds, Ola Belle Reed, Pappy Sherrill, Jimmy Stoneman, John Hartford, and Bill Napier to name a few. I remember saying to my partner, Tina, 'It’s a shame that all of these pioneers of bluegrass music are passing away and their stories may never be told.' And we got to thinking about all the unsung heroes of bluegrass that have died, with barely a ripple in music circles. What stories would they have told about the early days, about the big name stars, about their love of this music? So we thought it would be amazing to be able to talk to some of the remaining pioneers and share their thoughts and insights with future generations."
