Bluegrass and/or Blues Bands?

I play a Regal and I was wondering if anybody knew of any good Blues and or Bluegrass bands? I know a few but I want to hear other peoples insights. Also, it'd be nice to hear about new bands. I haven't heard of any new Blues or Bluegrass bands. Thank you.

There's this band, they're kind of new, called the Foggy Mountain Boys. Check them out.

Well, like any other form of music, there are sub-genres. In bluegrass, you have the category of "old-time" music, like Ralph Stanley. Then you have the real "bluegrass", as started out by Bill Monroe (with Flatt and Scruggs).
Then there's the "Newgrass" movement, which incorporates more modern influences like rock and reggae. Think Sam Bush.
Then, there's the sort of avant-garde of this sort of music, which seems to be based out of Boston at present. Nickel Creek, Chris Thiele, Edgar Meyer... Those guys. Think bluegrass with a jazz/classical influence.
As for blues bands... Most of my favorite guys are solo performers. Keb Mo, David Bromberg, Chris Smither, guys like that.
But there are plenty of good solid blues bands running around.
If you want the classic, it's real hard to beat the Muddy Waters Blues Band.

If you listen to the Punch brothers, you'll be familiar with Chris Theile, who is a mandolin virtuoso. He, and most of the guys in that circle, have been knocking around that avant-gard bluegrass scene for some time.
Check out the collaboration with cellist Yo-Yo Ma that was released last year, the Goat Rodeo Sessions. Here's a cut:

featuring Theile, Edgar Mayer, and vocalist Aoife O'Donovan, all vets of that Boston-based scene.
