Sam Gleaves, "Ain't We Brothers"
So proud gay man Sam Williams, are you proud of what you do with the man who is waiting at home for you?
Musicians do seem to be the embodiment of emotion -- but is an emotion guided by reason or not? And then there is the virtue-signalling: "I am tolerant." Which really means that their standards of morality are what matters, and that they are the ultimate arbiters of right and wrong, even if they pretend that it is all based on reason. (Liberals.)
When musicians believe they as "artists" should be messengers of change, they have crossed the line.
Does bluegrass as a genre belong only to traditional Americans? Who will stop the progressive musicians from making the music they want? But traditional Americans do not have to support them or play their music. The division between "Americans" will only solidify and grow.
Bluegrass Pride and the CBA-sponsored float in the SF Pride Parade -- leftists making a pitch for childless homo-consumers to become patrons for a genre that is losing audience in California thanks to bad economics and immigration. If these bluegrass musicians continue to wear their cultural Marxist pride on their sleeves they will end up driving away their conservative patrons, and perhaps the numbers lost will outweigh the numbers of new patrons gained through such acts. But the leftists don't care, they're making a point.
