Monroe, Bill definitions

Britannica Concise

U.S. singer, songwriter, and mandolin player, inventor of the bluegrass style. Born in Rosine, Ky., Monroe began to play professionally in 1927, and later toured with his brother Charlie. They made their first recordings in 1936 and recorded 60 songs over the next two years. He formed the Blue Grass Boys in 1939. His bluegrass sound emerged fully in 1945, when banjoist Earl Scruggs and guitarist L. Flatt joined his band. The Blue Grass Boys established the classic makeup of a bluegrass group--mandolin, fiddle, guitar, banjo, and upright bass--and bequeathed its name to the genre itself. Monroe continued to perform until shortly before his death.
