Milk 'em: The McGee Brothers

The lineage of bluegrass or American music in a broad sense is debatable for a variety of reasons. Each ethnic group, with its own unique cultural trappings has some perception of how it has influenced the greater culture, arts and music. Of course, no one perspective is wholly right. But it can be said that African culture has effected subsequent artistic movements in this country. After all, even the banjo comes from the African continent.
