A year without Earl

Jim Mills, outstanding Scruggs-style banjo-picker and historian of the prewar Gibson Mastertone, reminds us on Bluegrass Today that today is the first anniversary of the death of the Father of Bluegrass Banjo, Earl Eugene Scruggs. Read Jim's account of what this means to him; what it meant to him to have access for so many years to his hero; and what it should mean to us that we can still see, hear, and talk to so many of our bluegrass heroes.

Update 29 Mar.: Niall Toner has contributed a comment on Jim's post.
