Legacy: A Tribute to the First Generation of Bluegrass

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
This tribute album consists of previously released tracks by such modern bluegrass greats as Doyle Lawson, Tony Rice, the Seldom Scene, and Ricky Skaggs; all of the songs were either written by or closely associated with one of the foundational artists of early bluegrass: Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, or Flatt & Scruggs.

Though these performances could never take the place of the originals, this is a fine and heartfelt tribute to bluegrass music's pioneers.
