Bluegrass-Gospel is naturally very similar to country gospel, sharing many of the same songs and the same basic attitude. The main difference, of course, is that it's bluegrass, so the harmonies are pitched high and lonesome, the tempos are a little faster, and the instrumental work is deft and blindingly intricate. Unlike country-gospel, which can range from old timey to country-pop, bluegrass-gospel is pretty traditional, sticking to old-time songs played in the style of traditional bluegrass. There are exceptions to the rule, but in general, that applies for much of the style. Appropriately for a music so steeped in heritage, bluegrass-gospel has been performed since the inception of bluegrass.
