Earl Scruggs: banjo icon - coming in Mar. 2017

Thanks to Richard Thompson for revealing (in his feature yesterday on the late Vic Jordan in Bluegrass Today) that a new book on Earl Scruggs, the Father of Bluegrass Banjo, is expected to come on sale early next year. It is based on extensive interviews with Earl's family and many notable banjo-players and others who knew him or came under his influence.

Earl Scruggs: banjo icon, a 256-page book by Gordon Castelnero and David L. Russell, is being published by Rowman & Littlefield and is scheduled to appear in March 2017. The hardback is priced at $40.00 and the e-Book at $39.99; no details appear at present of a paperback issue.
