Do any of you have bluegrass music on your iPod? If so, which artists do you have?
newcomers home and nicklecreek are two of my favs
Avett Brothers, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Old Crow Medicine Show, Iron Horse
Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys
plus I just received a great compilation cd from the Florida Folklife project, "Look A-yonder Coming" (Bluegrass and old-time string band music)
There are mp3's available as well at http://www.floridamemory.com/collections/folklife/audio.cfm
Check out the Pandora internet radio app.
You can create your own "radio station" by typing in the name of a favorite artist, and Pandora will play stuff by that artist and similar ones.
I created "Sam Bush" radio and have heard a lot of really great Bluegrass. I also have "Beatles" radio, "Jethro Tull" radio, "Johann Sebastian Bach" radio, etc.
AKUS, Doyle Lawson, Dailey and Vincent, O Brother soundtrack, Del McCoury, Mountain Heart, DBFS, O Mickey Where Art Thou? (mostly for the kids but Randy Kohrs is AMAZING), Seldom Scene, Blue Highway, IIIrd Tyme Out, etc.
Pandora is a great app. It's ad supported but at least the ads are unobtrusive. Slacker radio ads have audio and are really annoying.
I wish there was more support for adding lyrics to bluegrass songs. I use iTuneFriend and that caught a few of my bluegrass songs, but not most.
