  15. Charlie Parr
  16. Peter Wolf Crier (for those of you who know me, yes I will include these guys)

  1. I remembered more!
    There is also some really great bluegrass that MN has to offer, such as: The Roe Family Singers and Pocahontas County.
    There is also Unknown Prophets, Jack Klatt and the Cat Swingers, and Mississippi Peace.
