The Father of Newgrass

As the “Father of Newgrass”, Sam Bush has inspired and influenced many along the way and changed the dynamics of the bluegrass music scene.
“It’s pretty overwhelming,” Bush remarked, after seeing the film for the first time. “Your friends are talking about you. You’re watching yourself back when you only had one chin. It’s pretty amazing to think I got out of high school 45 years ago and have been fortunate to play music ever since. I hope people come away from watching the film with a greater appreciation for Americana and acoustic music.”
