If you've come to this playlist as a Bluegrass expert then please excuse us for a sentence or two while we proffer a quick explanation of what this genre of music entails. Bluegrass is closely associated with country music and draws its inspiration from a variety of traditional music from Britain and Ireland. It has also been widely influenced by Appalachian folk and Afro-American music. So with such a heady list of inspirations it is not surprising that a Bluegrass Christmas playlist has a distinct personality. A lively one too as fiddle, banjo, mandolin and string bass combine to brew up a blustery snow storm. The vocals are joyously dispatched and much of what you are going to hear harks back to a simpler but ultimately more rewarding time.
