I only know Hayseed Dixie and they don't count.

They are supposed to be awesome live though!

pretty much everything Jack Rose did from the obvious (above) to his minimalist drone music (Pelt) all of it has a hint of bluegrass



my whole introduction to 16 Horsepower was by someone who appreciated their continuation of traditional American folk music....they have deep roots in bluegrass

Well, really 16 Horsepower are just one band from the whole "Americana" indie-rock movement. Not a bad band but their music's a pretty thin homage to Bluegrass I think.

Not to clog the thread with Earl Scruggs but here's a good video of him with a bunch of other pickers running a train on the banjo.

Haha Iv seen that before, awesome. You should see the movie about him, I think this is actually a scene from it.

Hayseed Dixie have several albums and got famous from playing bluegrassified covers. They've played quite a few concerts where I live, but I haven't gone to see them yet.

Anyways, we have some bands and artists that play bluegrass or at least are kinda bluegrassy. Here's one which I've posted before, the magnificent Řystein Sunde and his song Kulingbarsel.

I've seen Hayseed Dixie twice. Despite the corny name, a skit on AC/DC, they are not just a novelty band. They are great musicians that adopt comedy personas onstage.
