Folk Music, Bluegrass… What’s the Difference?

From a letter to Folk Alley:

“Good morning,

We Soldiers would like to know what the difference is between Folk Music and Bluegrass Music?

As you may know we all have varying ideas.

No one wants to answer the question because we all have differing views.

I think Bluegrass is singing which involves more solo instrumental. It is geared to foot stomping / dancing.

Folk music is telling a story and with a song. It does not involve the use of instrumental solos like bluegrass.

We love the music and it brings some comfort during/after a stressful day.

In your service,

LTC Joey Boyles”
