Online I see people committing 'social media suicide' all the time by one of two ways.

You know, for most of its life bluegrass has had this stigma of being all straw hats and hay bales and not necessarily the most sophisticated form of music.

People want to see musicians sing things that come from their own mind and own heart in real time, responding to the moment for them.

One of the first places where I started to respond to song lyrics was in reggae music. A lot of what I was responding to were references to the Old Testament. It was not that I had to adapt the lyrics to the sound. Reggae and the Old Testament are bound up together. There wasn't anything that I had to do.

Sri Mulyani Indrawati
