Earl Scruggs

Monday, April 9, 2012

In the Barkers Vale Brothers we were saddened and touched by the recent passing of one of the great masters of our favourite instrument . So here is our tribute to the late and great Earl Scruggs. 

Thanks Earl.

Updside down banjo playing acrobat, I spend half the year in Austrialia and the other half in Europe, touring with the two projects I'm involved with, THE VON TROLLEY QUARTET (clownesque music comedy)and THE PITTS (knockabout, and adagio acrobatics) I hardly meet any other Banjo Players so I think banjo hangout is the best!... I play a mix scruggs, melodic, bit of single string stuff, some chord melody,bit of alternating bass pickin' and whatever else tickles my pinky. I've also started a Bluegrass roots and swing Duo with my brother we are called "The Barkers Vale Brothers"
