Michael Daves: Styles of Bluegrass vocals

Welcome to the latest episode of the ArtistWorks Music Series podcast! This week, ArtistWorks CEO Patricia Butler sits down with bluegrass vocal icon Michael Daves to discuss the rich musical legacy of bluegrass music. The show is available wherever you listen to podcasts, or you can listen here at ArtistWorks.

On this podcast, Michael discusses the development of the diverse roots that create the world of modern bluegrass vocals. “What we’re talking about is a tradition that officially began in the 1940’s,” Michael explains, “but its roots go back much earlier than that and continue to evolve today.”  

Michael explains that  while bluegrass is a genre deeply rooted in tradition, it is also a genre constantly looking toward the future. “In the ‘60s Bluegrass was deeply influenced by folk music; in the ‘70s bluegrass began to incorporate psychedelic elements; today bluegrass continues to incorporate aspects of popular music into its traditions.”  



On the ArtistWorks Music Series, CEO Patricia Butler speaks with master musicians across all genres who teach at ArtistWorks. Join them as they dive deep into topics like becoming a musician, playing at all skill levels and the journey of learning music.
