No single figure in American music so dominated a genre as did Bill Monroe with Bluegrass. Monroe's performing career spanned 60 years as a singer, composer and bandleader. This film features archival footage and rare 1990s performances from the legendary Bill Monroe's final years including many of the greatest songs from his six decades of recording, such as "Uncle Pen" and "Muleskinner Blues." In addition, it offers unparalleled access to Bill Monroe telling his story in his own words. Other interview subjects include the Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia and country music legend Roy Acuff, in one of his final film appearances.
Bill Monroe: Father of Bluegrass Music stands alone as the most intimate and detailed portrait of this unique musical innovator.
