Earl Scruggs Tribute

Earl Scruggs may not have invented the banjo but he definitely rescued it from obscurity. His innovative three-finger style which produced an impossible flurry of staccato notes gained national attention when he appeared on the Grand Ole Opry as a 21-year-old member of Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys in the fall of 1945. Earl’s music transcends genres and generations. he took his banjo to folk festivals and appeared with the likes of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Ravi Shankar and the Byrds. He won Grammy Awards, cut sides with Elton John and Sting and at the age of 84 appeared at Bonnaroo. Today’s genre-bending artists like Mumford and Sons, Trampled by Turtles and the Punch Brothers carry on the unmistakable influence of Earl. Slacker Radio's Earl Scruggs Tribute station features many of Earl’s classic recordings, along with just a few of the thousands of artists and bands who have been strongly influenced by the greatest banjo player in the history of music, Earl Scruggs.
