Bluegrass Today Article

In this Bluegrass Today article - Rookie Riot teaches young Swedes to play bluegrass - you can learn about our history and our goals perfectly put together by Lee Zimmerman. “If you play bluegrass and love this music, it is almost impossible to not be influenced by the first generation of bluegrass musicians — Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, Stanley Brothers and more,” he insists. “We do a few Monroe and Kenny Baker numbers — Jerusalem Ridge, Let Me Rest, and Ashland Breakdown, to name a few. That being said, I believe the main influences among the band members would lean more towards bands like Sideline, Mountain Heart, the Steeldrivers and, of course, Union Station. I believe the public awareness of bluegrass music in Europe is very much due to Alison Krauss & Union Station.”
