Ryan plays homage to Scruggs at New York's Blue Note Jazz Club April 10-14

Posted by Ryan Cavanaugh on Tuesday, April 3, 2012

I was fortunate enough to have a few conversations with our hero Earl Scruggs, and having spent my formative years in an extensive study of his music,  I will be inserting a little something Earl in all of my solos at the Blue Note Jazz Club, in NYC next week.  April 10-14 

Here is a link for more info:

I felt like really got to know Earl from the age of 10 -15.  I spent hour upon hour with his instructional book and records, even being influenced by his dress style and hair style ;)  I attended Earl's funeral service and was deeply moved by speeches from Charlie Daniels, Bela Fleck, John McEuen, and Vince Gill.  I learned that Earl was indeed the sweet man he portrayed in all of his photos and interviews and that is something I found great comfort in.  He was a good friend and father best of all.  My farewell to him was a tearful one for sure.  Nashville has lost an icon and it feels as if a big part of it died with him.  

-RIP my hero Earl Scruggs
