Default Bill Monroe and other original bluegrass artists

Hey, original bluegrass lovers. I love original bluegrass, like Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs, Chubby Wise, Howard Watts, Jimmy Martin, Ralph Stanley, and others. I know a lot about them, but if you have any information about them, I would greatly appreciate it.

I got a chance to see Ralph Stanley at The Moore theater in Seattle a year or two ago. It was cool to see such an icon of the genre. The only thing that could top that would be Earl Scruggs but I don't think he tours much outside of the southeast.

Don't forget Doc Watson. Bluegrass needs to be heard in a live setting to really be appreciated. Nothing else like it.
