NY Times: Bourbon & Bluegrass

Image Copyright © Susana Raab/NY Times-All Rights Reserved

The New York Times combines Kentucky Bourbon and the wonderful music of bluegrass to bring us a multimedia feature with photographs by Susana Raab.

The accompanying article is by Steven Kurutz who fashioned the itinerary "in the style of a bluegrass song: a defined structure but with ample room for improvisation."

The first part of the trip was spent on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, visiting seven distilleries open to the public. The final stop was at the 6th annual Jerusalem Ridge Bluegrass Celebration in Rosine, the birthplace of Bill Monroe, the father of bluegrass.

A delightful little piece of Americana...and great live music.
