Bluegrass music is a little bit hard to define and sometimes compared to Blues. Let’s say that Blues has history dating back to Africa while the roots of Bluegrass date back to Germany and the Swedish region. Blues is a direct result of slaves and gospel while Bluegrass is a result of immigrants mixing different styles of sound and instruments from Europe. … Bluegrass branched out into what we now know as country.
