As a bandmate, Lowinger was given unique access to Monroe's private life, and this book presents these photos as well as other photos documenting Lowinger's involvement with the bluegrass scene beginning in the early 1960s.

Lowinger also tells his own story of a New Jersey boy obsessed with folk and old-time music, and he recounts college trips to country music parks in Pennsylvania to see Monroe and other bluegrass masters; his stints as a fiddler for the New York Ramblers, Greenbriar Boys, and Blue Grass Boys; and his memories of playing at the Grand Ole Opry and music festivals.

A photographic reflection on Bill Monroe's public and private life, I Hear a Voice Calling also testifies to the bluegrass master's profound mentorship and guidance.
