Earl in the New Yorker - blog, that is

Thanks to Bluegrass Today for drawing attention to the appearance of an article by Steve Martin about Earl Scruggs on the culture blog of the prestigious New Yorker magazine. Acknowledging help received from Gary Scruggs and from two master communicators and banjo historians Pete Wernick and Tony Trischka, the article provides a good overview of the career of the Father of Bluegrass Banjo, with a fine recent photo, and may have a surprise or two even for some who already know a good deal on the subject. And you get to hear 'Foggy Mountain breakdown'.
