I love American roots and Pete Seeger is my all-time favorite, although it's hard to choose because I love them all!

My grandfather plays in a bluegrass/gospel band and I just love taking my kids to see them play and watching them dance to good old fashioned American music!

I love Blue Grass-it is truly Americana. I don't really know any of the popular singers but when I was a child, there was a pizza parlor in my city that had live Blue Grass music every Friday and Saturday evening. My little sister and I used to dance there! Blue Grass music just sounds like the U.S. in the summer. Perfect match. Thanks for the opportunity.

I still love to hear Burl Ives sing with his warm, mellow voice.

I used to ride in the back of my parents' beige VW bug in the early '70s on our way to sell Navajo jewelry at rest stops. We liked Buffy Sainte-Marie, and enjoyed the twang of the mouthbow.

The Carter Family is an easy pick, but I also love Old and In The Way (w/ Jerry Garcia) that introduced a whole new crowd to roots music.

Since moving to AZ and experiencing more of the Western lifestyle, I have grown to appreciate the music, especially of the cowboys. In terms of pure American music, "This Land is Your Land" defines the roots of the American experience.

Bruce Springsteen's album of Pete Seeger covers is an amazing example of Americana. Saw him perform it live which was a wonderful experience.

I don't have a favorite artist but I like to listen to The United States of Americana on 89.3 The Current (MPR).

that is really a hard question to answer, so many and so many great songs too, One of my favorites was watching Les Claypool thumb a banjo playing Iowan Gal however you had to be there to hear it in its full quality.

Growing up in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Blue Grass was the first music I ever heard. I'm now 56 years old, and even tho thru the years I have learned to love a lot of other types of music, I still dearly love Blue Grass. It still has the power to make me stop dead in my tracks and intently listen. I an not able to choose a favorite musician because I like many different types. Each type of music has a favorite artist for me.

The grateful dead in their many iterations always had a bluegrass feel. I loved it when they used some instruments that were more country than rock and roll.

My family has recently started a bluegrass band. We love all bluegrass music, but my husband and I have really enjoyed listening to Sierra Hull's new CD. Hope we win!

My husband exposed me to many genres of music and now I truly enjoy the blues, bluegrass, jazz, and country- all destinctly American. As far as favorite artists It is so hard to pinpoint. there are so many like Johnny Cash, Ralph Stanley and Doc Watson.
