Sam Bush, aka The Father of Newgrass, is known as one of the liveliest performers around. Bush formed the New Grass Revival in 1972, and over the next 17 years, he and the band revolutionized the music of the hill country, incorporating everything from gospel and reggae to rock and modern jazz into their tradition-rooted sound. Over the past two decades as a solo artist with the Sam Bush Band, he's released seven albums and a live DVD. In 2009, the Americana Music Association awarded Bush the Lifetime Achievement Award for Instrumentalist. The Punch Brothers, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Greensky Bluegrass are just a few present-day bluegrass vanguards he’s influenced.
