If you haven’t yet taken a moment today to honor the loss of the world’s premier banjo player I am providing that here. Take a moment and listen to just a bit of the musical genius that was Earl Scruggs. A pioneering banjo player, Scruggs transformed not just bluegrass but all of music.

NY Times did a piece on the Old Time Fiddler’s and Bluegrass Festival in Fiddler’s Grove North Carolina. The festival in Fiddler’s Grove looks pretty excellent but sounds even better. A celebration of traditional bluegrass of the mountains of Appalachia, in the mountains of Appalachia.

Old photo from festival, that’s Doc Watson on the right.
