Film: High Lonesome: The Story of Bluegrass Music

Weaving haunting archival footage and photographs from the 1930s and 40s with toe-tapping live performances, this film traces the origins of bluegrass music from the Kentucky hills of Appalachia through the innovations that shaped its current form. This documentary explores the history of this subgenre of country music through the story of Bill Monroe, who is considered the father of bluegrass.
