Earl Scruggs: Banjo Icon - Book Launch

In partnership with Gordon Castelnero and David L. Russell, authors of Earl Scruggs: Banjo Icon, the Earl Scruggs Center is honored to be the host site for the launch of the first ever biography on four time Grammy winner Earl Scruggs (published by Rowman & Littlefield). Join the staff of the Earl Scruggs Center and Castelnero and Russell Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Hear the how and why of this much awaited book as the authors share stories and field questions from guests.  They will sign books following the program.  Musicians are invited to come and be part of an informal pickin’ session (featuring classic Scruggs tunes) during the book signing along with special guests Terry Baucom of The Dukes of Drive, Jason Burleson of Blue Highway, Marc Pruitt of Balsam Range and Kristin Scott Benson of the Grascals.
