RIP Earl Scruggs

Today is a sad day in the bluegrass world. Earl Scruggs has died at 88. Now I’m not a huge country music fan but I do love some of the older stuff and bluegrass in particular has a special place in my heart. Scruggs was a champion and legend with the banjo. His stamp on the field will always be recognized. If you haven’t heard of his work before, check below for some great examples:
