Old-time string band and bluegrass music has deep roots in Florida with fiddle players, such as Cush Holston and Richard Seaman. Old-time is based on the centuries-old dance music and songs of people of Anglo-Celtic descent. Bluegrass takes its name from Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys, a Kentucky band that combined elements of old-time, big band, blues and other influences to create a new, high energy musical style in the 1940s.
