There is only one consensus pick of peers and predecessors... There is only one Sam Bush. Bush was a three-time national champion in the junior division of the National Oldtime Fiddler's Contest. He recorded an instrumental album, Poor Richard's Almanac, as a high school senior and in the spring of 1970 attended the Fiddler's Convention in Union Grove, NC. There he heard the New Deal String Band, taking notice of their rock-inspired brand of progressive bluegrass. Roy Acuff offered him a spot in his band. Bush politely turned down the country titan. He admired the grace of Flatt & Scruggs, loved Bill Monroe - but he'd discovered electrified alternatives to tradition in the Osborne Brothers and manifest destiny in The Dillards. Later in his career, Bush began playing mandolin after recruiting guitarist Tony Rice to the fold. Bush and his Alliance mates formed the New Grass Revival, issuing the band's debut album, New Grass Revival. The Americana Music Association awarded Bush the Lifetime Achievement Award for Instrumentalist and his performances are annual highlights of the festival circuit. Punch Brothers, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Greensky Bluegrass are just a few present-day bluegrass vanguards among so many musicians he's influenced.
