Oh her hair was dark and curly
And her cheeks were rosy red
On her breast she wore a lilly
Where I longed to lay my head

It's not often you hear uncle monkeyfeet play Scruggs banjo, but when he does it's awesome and out of tune (because, banjo?) #banjo #earlscruggs #bluegrass #aintnopartofnothin #randylynnrag

So humbled to play the @theryman tonight with my @stringdusters brothers. And then I saw this legend on the wall and couldn't stop the rush of reminiscing about all my time in Nashville, the endless hours with this bizarre, beautiful instrument, the grind and the blissful ignorance that keeps us all going when the grind is in full swing, the importance of bluegrass and how lucky I am to be a part of it, and ultimately how not one single bit of that happens without the pure inspiration that is Earl Scruggs. Thank you Earl, and to everyone who's helped me along the way! Tonight is a great night and I'm enjoying every second of it! #EarlScruggs #Bluegrass

We were driving to our gig in #charlotte when I noticed we were in Shelby NC where Bluegrass Banjo innovator Earl Scruggs grew up. 20 minutes later we had directions to his old home place and we spent a chunk of the early afternoon pickin there. He and his brother Horace used to start a tune out front and then walk around the house in opposite directions to see if they could still be in time with each other when they got around back. #bluegrasshistory #earlscruggs

Cheers to this badass instrument and that bluegrass twang for keeping my mind occupied through 4 months of absolute shit.

Look at these greats that played Charlie B's Ranch Arena! We love hearing your stories from the old days. Please keep sharing them with us! **Fun Charlie B's trivia: if you look closely, the poster says "Red" Speedwagon. This was the first poster printed and no one caught the misprint since the band was virtually unknown at the time. They didn't notice until after a lot of posters had already distributed! REO Speedwagon went on to become one of the biggest bands of the 80's and they still tour today!

@charlieworsham playin' Groundspeed, y'all!! 😻Awesome show at @thebasementeast to benefit @followyourheartarts -- Charlie playing banjo and doing all bluegrass with this all star band! Ugh. So. Good. // #BGS #rootscultureredefined #CharlieWorsham

Well worn copy of The Earl Scruggs Revue "Live From Austin City Limits" one if the first shows PBS aired on their now legendary program. Bluegrass at it's hipest... Earl and his sons Randy ,Gary and Steve redefine the style opening with Dylan's Nashville Skyline Rag into I Shall be Released ....and it just gets better from there. If u wanna explore bluegrass this is a great place to start . From the liner notes: "....the program is designed to give the artists a true concert environment. The audience surrounds the stage (there's not a bad seat in the house). The beer is free and you can't beat the ticket price (same as the beer). The result is an excellent television progam.". ....and some damn fine music.
