Just read the Nickel Creek thread...
I've heard this argument before -- 20+ years ago.
Earl and his boys (the Revue) weren't invited to play
"bluegrass" festivals because they "weren't bluegrass."
They took a lot of heat, back then,
from traditionalists who wanted to keep it pure:
No drums, no electric bass, no electric guitars ...
steel guitar and piano in a bluegrass band?!?! heaven forbid!
Thank you Earl for breaking down barriers.
