In 1946, Bill Monroe started his own style of music that was a mix of old timey, country blues, and Irish fiddle tunes. The name of the band was Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys. The name stuck as did the style of music and as they say, the rest is history. They used string instruments used in popular music of the day such as the fiddle, mandolin, guitar, upright bass, dobro, banjo and accordian (in the beginning). Bill Monroe was the band leader, playing fiddle tunes and other songs with his mandolin. Even today many musicians claim they were first influenced by the legacy of The Father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe.
This Tee was originally a woodcut - a relief printing artistic technique in which an image is carved into the surface of a block of wood, with the printing parts remaining level with the surface while the non-printing parts are removed, typically with gouges. The areas to show the background are cut away with a knife or chisel, leaving the characters or image to show in the ink at the original surface level. The woodcut or linocut (using modern linoleum instead of wood) surface is then covered with ink by rolling over the surface with an ink-covered roller (brayer), leaving ink upon the flat surface but not in the non-printing areas. It is considered a craftwork done only by dedicated artists in this day and age. Each of our woodcut designed tshirts are also available as prints on quality paper. Please Inquire.
