As NPR Music celebrates its 10th anniversary, we're looking back at the first decade of our existence year by year. This website was born during a time when technology was changing how we bought, sold, carried, listened to and understood music; some of the developments that we saw as revolutionary in the moment almost feel quaint today. The music has a way of sticking around, though, as do the memories of the people we shared it with: musicians, friends, you. Our list isn't comprehensive — it couldn't be.

Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn's new album is called Echo In The Valley. Both artists have built lives on squeezing more sound, story and emotion out of the banjo than you may have thought possible — she in the clawhammer style of her hero Doc Watson, and he from the three-finger school of Earl Scruggs.
