Test Your Bluegrass Knowledge

The bluegrass community is a fun-loving, down-to-earth group of folks who enjoy their music to their fullest. Part of this enjoyment stems from the fact that the knowledge of little-known facts and figures can be shared with others with whom they come in contact. Bluegrass music is meticulous, yet simple. Intense, but satisfying.

Someone that has an extraordinarily knowledge of "the little things" in bluegrass trivia and can recall them at a moment's notice. Are YOU a bluegrass genius???
