John Hartford, one of the reasons I took up the fiddle.

 

If you ever listened to the soundtrack of "O' Brother Where Art Thou?" He's that amazing fiddle solo at track 13 that just speaks volumes of lonely.

Yeah, Bluegrass is a specific genre that is more recent than most of what gets called Old Time.  I don't really know those genres well enough to go into the specifics.

But you could start with the omnipresent wiki entries to get a better idea of the difference.

"This young wine may have a lot of tannins now, but in 5 or 10 years it is going to be spectacular, despite the fact that right now it tastes like crude oil. You know this is how it is supposed to taste at this stage of development." ~ Itzhak Perlman
