William Smith Monroe (/mənˈroʊ/; September 13, 1911 – September 9, 1996) was an American mandolinist, singer, and songwriter, who helped to create the style of music known as bluegrass. Because of this, he is commonly referred to as the "Father of Bluegrass". The genre takes its name from his band, the Blue Grass Boys, named for Monroe's home state of Kentucky. Monroe's performing career spanned 69 years as a singer, instrumentalist, composer and bandleader.
As the music critic John Morthland has written, ''Bluegrass was almost entirely the creation of Bill Monroe. Monroe is a severe-looking man who makes music that is loose, playful, and frequently frenetic in its precision and intensity. The Father of Bluegrass Music features interviews with musicians who have been influenced by Monroe, including Emmylou Harris, Marty Stuart, Jerry Garcia, and Ricky Skaggs
