'Sounds Like Home': A Bluegrass Band in Japan
Apr 14, 2015
Mipso, a North Carolina bluegrass band, travels halfway around the world in this charming documentary by Jon Kasbe. The band discovers a strong bluegrass scene within Japan, rife with virtuoso fiddle and banjo players, who join them for impromptu jam sessions during their tour. "Sounds like home," says guitarist Joseph Terrell. "Without the words, it sounds like any other bluegrass. And then when they sing, you can tell it's Japanese bluegrass!"
