"This work has historical import, not only for what it contributes to our understanding of the emergence of bluegrass music but also for highlighting the significant role that scholars have on recording music history." --Indiana Magazine of History
"Bluegrass Generation: A Memoir is well worth the read. Rosenberg's style is fluid, clear, and reader-friendly; it is detailed without being stuffy, interesting without being narrow, and factual without being opinionated." --Banjo Newsletter

"The audience for this book need not be limited to bluegrass scholars and enthusiasts. Students of ethnomusicology may find it invaluable as an informal guidebook for ethnography. Readers who are dual musician-scholars or arts administrator-scholars will appreciate the synergy between Rosenberg's research and industry activities." --CAML Review
"Reading Bluegrass Generation was an enjoyable reminder of my time at Bean Blossom as a Blue Grass Boy. It brought back a lot of memories and reminded me of a few things I'd forgotten, too--and I even learned some things I never knew!"--Del McCoury
"Bluegrass Generation: A Memoir is highly recommended to all students of bluegrass, but especially anyone who has fond memories of the Bean Blossom Festivals in the 1960s, 70s and 80s." --Bluegrass Breakdown
"His behind-the-scenes remembrances give valuable insight into the evolution of the bluegrass genre. This book is appropriate for both fans and researchers of bluegrass and country music. Recommended." --Choice
"An ode to a time and a place when college kids and country folks bonded over a love of bluegrass." --Wall Street Journal
"[Neil Rosenberg's] the perfect guide--our Virgil--to a unique place and time in bluegrass music. This memoir is as essential reading as Bluegrass: A History" --Bluegrass Unlimited
"If you want the inside scoop on how bluegrass music came to be, this is it." --Inland Northwest Bluegrass Music Association
