This term refers to bluegrass music that originated in or is associated with southwestern Ohio. Dr. Neil V. Rosenberg, a member of the Bluegrass Hall of Fame, coined the word over thirty years ago to describe the music created by Appalachian immigrants who settled in the Cincinnati/Dayton area and created music that has been recognized across the globe.  The Osborne Brothers, Jim and Jesse, Red Allen, Larry Sparks, Jimmy Martin and other Bluegrass Hall of Fame members lived and performed in  the Miami Valley for a portion of their careers. In Ohio recording studios, Flatt and Scruggs, The Stanley Brothers, Dave Evans, and many more recorded.  The Boys From Indiana, The Allen Brothers, and The Radio Ramblers, among others, started their careers in this area. And Joe’s father, the late Paul “Moon” Mullins, broadcasted and performed ALL of this music and its history for decades.
