Over the past several years, bluegrass has seen a heavy resurgence in American culture, although its popularity has created a great divide between roots bluegrass and pop-bluegrass.

Mainstream pop-culture in the United States got a taste of bluegrass-ish music when British based Mumford and Sons released their album Sigh No More, however, their sound took a sharp turn once their songs began to top the charts.
