American mandolinist who pioneered bluegrass music (which takes its name from his band, the "Blue Grass Boys"), often referred to as "the father of bluegrass." Monroe's performing career spanned 60 years as a singer, instrumentalist, composer and bandleader. He has been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as an "early influence").

b. 13 September 13, 1911 (Rosine, KY, USA)

d. 9 September, 1996 (Springfield, TN, USA)
