New artists from Appalachia area of Kentucky

I am not a huge Country or Bluegrass fan but my work recently has expanded my horizon to a few talented folks from Kentucky.

Local Honeys (Bluegrass)

I’m certainly not a country western purest, but so much music comes out of the folk, bluegrass & country vibe

It’s lost on me living basically in Nashville. I wish I loved it more so I could take advantage of my location.

I found myself liking fusion jazz from listening to the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

I kind of had to…my wife’s cousin Kenny is in the band.

I love Charles Mingus.

Agreed - one of the greatest of all time!

One of his better known tunes, but one of my favorites: Goodbye Pork Pie Hat

I will say I prefer more of the New Orleans Second line sound.

Trombone shorty?

Sure. He’s more new school with some diff sound. I like traditional second line and Mardi Gras Indian music.

I do feel these guys transcended folk, country, blues, jazz etc…
But of course, not everyone likes em…
