I want to burn a CD or two for my boss's kids aged 11 and 14 who are into bluegrass mostly. I'm looking for some good song recommendations that feature guitar and/or mandolin and in the bluegrass/folk punk genre. Tunes to inspire them but also maybe some songs that are a little simpler, that they could learn themselves. Help me out guys?

I don't know about the folk punk scene, but as far as bluegrass:

"The lighthouse tale" - Nickle creek
"Fly away" - Alison Krause
"Foggy mountain breakdown" - various artists
"You are my sunshine" - various artists

Artists:

The steeldrivers
Alison Krauss and Union Station
Tony Rice
Nickle Creek
Sam Bush
Jerry Douglas

Many more, but I can't think of them at the moment.

More in the folk artist realm, but I would recommend Lost Dog Street Band, The Devil Makes Three, Rubber Knife Gang, and Bad Livers. Wouldn't hurt to put a couple songs from Nahko on there.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$90.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $90.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $90.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
