Charlie Monroe

Description
Charlie Monroe, Bill Monroe's older brother, helped lay the groundwork for bluegrass music during their few years together. The brothers separated in 1938, after recording for only two years. Charlie continued to perform until he retired in 1957. Thanks to Jimmy Martin's persuasion, Monroe re-emerged in 1972 and performed again until his death in 1975.
