Bluegrass and Radical Inclusion

Very, very proud of Tristan Scroggins for his powerful introspection. Bluegrass is going through a moment right now of radical inclusion and deep reckoning, with Rhiannon Giddens’ keynote speech at IBMA and a bluegrass float being recognized at the San Francisco Pride parade. There is so much work to do, and much of it looks like this. We should all do what Tristan is doing and look at ourselves. Challenge yourself to be a better ally in your community, and if that means changing the community, just a little bit, you’ll be glad you did.
