Visit our website for additional information: hoylesbluegrass.com I was very fortunate to be playing the 1971 Camp Springs, NC Bluegrass Festival with Blackwell & Collins and the Dixie Bluegrass Boys when the movie was filmed which captured Earl Scruggs playing Foggy Mtn Breakdown on stage with all the great banjo players of that era. I was 14 years of age when I played on stage with Earl, my hero! Influenced by everything from the traditional style of Scruggs and the mountain sound of the Stanley Brothers to the more progressive style of Jimmy Arnold and Bela Fleck, Eddie Hoyle has been a mainstay banjoist on the bluegrass music scene since the 70’s! Featured as a young teen-aged banjoist, playing alongside Earl Scruggs in the historic and renowned bluegrass music documentary, “Bluegrass, Country Soul,” Eddie has played with many professional bands over the years. Eddie is also a two-time Fiddler’s Grove Banjo Champion. Eddie grew up with a musical heritage, surrounded by his family who played and sang. Early on, he formed a band with his brother, Al and sister, Lisa, who now travel and perform with The Little Roy Lewis and Lizzie Long Show. When performing as a family band, as they still do on occasion, The Hoyles blend together their rich acoustic instruments as they reach a tight family harmony scarcely achieved by any means other than years of growing up playing and singing together.
