Default 2 (slightly weird) music questions

1) Does anyone have any good bluegrass rec's? I like the kind where there is lots of pickin' and the male singers have sort of high voices (?)

I know I sound like a complete dummy, but here is an example of what I'm talking about; I hope this helps. I have one CD from this group.

2) Okay.....the scene from Titanic when Kate and Leonardo go down to the lower deck to party with the "low-class" folk......what type of music was that, and where can I find some like it?

Thanks

I think Steve Martin is a bluegrass singer. He plays banjo. Might check it out.

Wasn't that Titanic music more like Irish music?

You're thinking of old time "High country" close-singing bluegrass (by your description; I haven't seen "Titanic"). If that's the case, you want Bill Monroe, the earlier, the better (although with Scruggs and Flatt, you can't go wrong either.)

It gets under your skin.

Re: Titanic clip

Yes, I think it was. I really REALLY loved it. I know virtually nothing about either genre, but I swear I've ever heard Irish music I didn't like.

My grandma was in a bluegrass band for most of her life! She played the mandolin. I know absolutely nothing else about bluegrass but if you're ever in mid-eastern Ohio and come across an old String-A-Longs cassette, that was her band!

SG, I'll look around, too!

That "high lonesome" sound.

I love close-singing, and went to WV to music camp for it one summer. A great experience.

Okay, I've got a Bill Monroe song playing on Youtube right now...

YEP! this is what I'm looking for! I really like the sound of the mandolin in bluegrass.

It's very emotional........plaintive, I would say.

Glad you like it.

The band was Gaelic Storm. Maybe you can find other recs from their page.

Down From The Mountain, recorded as a concert by the artists who did the music for the movie Oh Brother Where Art Thou is some great bluegrass Old-Timey stuff.

I adore that movie, and I have the CD, too - great music!

You should rent or buy Songcatcher.

For mainline bluegrass check out Alison Krauss, Ricky Staggs or Vince Gill.

Earl Scruggs and Lester Flatt are also very good if you like old time bluegrass music.

This isn't really "traditional" bluegrass, but this band is one of my faves: White Water Ramble. (Too bad you can't see the mandolin and violin "dueling" there... man they have a great time performing!).

Their music is described as "high octane dance-grass," and it's really fun.

I was also going to mention the Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack. It seems to have lots of that old school folk and bluegrass you seem to like.

i sometimes listen to the bluegrass station on comcast. you know, those stations that are like on channel 940 or something like that.
if you don't have the soundtrack to oh brother where art thou (as others have suggested) be sure to run and get it.
