No single figure in American popular music has so dominated a style as Bill Monroe has bluegrass music.  A member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1939, he created the music out of his Eastern Kentucky roots, taking the fiddle tunes learned the his Uncle Pen Vandiver and the blues learned from black blues guitarist Arnold Schultz, fusing it all into a new sound. 

Bill Monroe: Father of Bluegrass Music features music performances by Bill Monroe and The Bluegrass Boys, Lester Flatt, Emmylou Harris, John Hartford, Bill Keith, Paul McCartney, Del McCoury, The Osborne Brothers, Dolly Parton, Peter Rowan & Tim O'Brian, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart and "Chubby" Wise.
