The Osborne Brothers: A Familial Bluegrass

Siblings, often times, possess an innate ability to guess at what one another are up to. That obviously translates well into a musical setting. And because of that there are a great many familial groups that have graced records over time – and no, the Partridge Family doesn’t count, the Cowsills do.

Either way, bluegrass and country music, since it’s based on tradition and what not, is as a good a ground for family get-togethers as any other genre. And seeing as the Carter Family is and will remain a towering remainder of where the music is coming from, it’s appropriate that the Osborne Brothers sought to continue on with that legacy – with a few slight innovations.
