‘Honoring the Fathers of Bluegrass: Tribute to 1946 and 1947,’ from 14-time Grammy winner Ricky Skaggs and the ace pickers of Kentucky Thunder, is a mix of bluegrass classics and diamonds in the rough.  This album shines a light on the songs that would eventually become the building blocks of bluegrass.  Initially recorded by Bill Monroe and the “Original Bluegrass Band” (Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs, Chubby Wise, and Howard Watts) in ’46 and ’47, songs like “Toy Heart” and “Little Cabin Home On The Hill” provide a window into the bluegrass canon at the eve of its creation.  This album won a GRAMMY for Best Bluegrass Album and is one you definitely have to have in your collection!
