I'm still transferring music to my new toy and a CD of bluegrass from the Oxford American magazine got listed as Alternative/Punk. I've decided to reclassify it for obvious reasons, but Bluegrass isn't a choice. Would you stick it under Country or Folk?


Folk... with out even batting an eyelash...

I second the vote for folk as a kneejerk reaction.

I concur.

I would choose custom and create Bluegrass as a category.

Actually, you don't even have to head to custom. If you just type it in, my version of Itunes will simply accept it as a new category. I still haven't figured out how to delete categories, which I'd like to do for things like Ska and Electronica.

Just a note to say that I *love* bluegrass...was just in Tower Records the other day trying to find some more good bluegrass music:)

The folk v country depends on a few things. Was it recorded in Nashville? Did the musicians wear boots or Birkenstocks? Was the break beverage cola, regular coffee or beer or white wine and lattes?
You can’t be too careful about these things.
