I don’t really recall when I first heard bluegrass music, but I’m certain it didn’t make much of an impression on me until the first time I saw a live show (John Hartford and The Dillards, for what it’s worth). At that moment, the speed/death/punk/heavy metal-head in me realized that intensity and unbounded energy in music wasn’t confined to Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. I was reminded of that epiphany upon hearing the latest Scott Law release, Black Mountain.
