Big Lick Scruggs tribute video

Here’s video of the Earl Scruggs tribute held last weekend at the Big Lick Festival in North Carolina.

We published some photos yesterday taken by Laura Tate Ridge, and now comes this  27-minute video of the stage presentation, hosted by Little Roy Lewis and Lizzy Long. In addition to some fine banjo picking’ from Lizzy, Roy, Sammy Shelor, Steven Baldridge, Marc Pruett and others, a number of poignant stories about Earl are shared.
