Free & legal downloads

marthettesFree & legal downloads: I know this must be so last century’s news, but I just ran across the Free Downloads page on and discovered they have around 250 bluegrass tracks for free, including ten from Allison Krauss and ten from Doc Watson. For those who think bluegrass musicians are all twang, I recommend downloading the song “Harvest Time” from the incredible CD “Into the Cauldrin,” recorded by mandolin greats Mike Marshall and Chris Thile. And try this jazz-bluegrass fusion piece called G Forces by fiddler Stuart Duncan.
