This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Earl Scruggs April 23, 2016Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....
I like a bit of Banjo, I even bought a Fureys and Davey Arthur record on the strength of the banjo in ‘Sweet Sixteen’ ! However I’m going for a far faster style of banjo picking here with one of my favourite bluegrass banjo players, the late Earl Scruggs. You’re probably familiar with some of the tunes (especially The Beverly Hillbillies theme song).
It’s funny too how Scruggs went out of fashion for a period and then in the mid 90’s his career picked up again as he was ‘rediscovered’. It really is feelgood music.
