Review quote

ADVANCE PRAISE "Bluegrass Breakdown is a seminal work in its field... Robert Cantwell has had the foresight, the initiative, and the intellectual creativity to create a model for explaining a major force in southern and, indeed, American culture." -- The Journal of Southern History "A thoroughly researched and often brilliant attempt to place bluegrass music into a historical, as well as musicological, cultural, and imaginative context. Bluegrass Breakdown is, without a doubt, the most thought-provoking work on bluegrass -- and its father, Bill Monroe -- I have ever read." -- Jon Hartley Fox, Bluegrass Unlimitedshow more
