Scruggs funeral audio available online

WSM has posted the audio from this past Sunday’s Celebration of Life for Earl Scruggs at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

Hosted by Eddie Stubbs, it includes personal and musical tributes to Earl from Del McCoury, Ricky Skaggs, Béla Fleck, Charlie Daniels, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, Patty Loveless, John McEuen, Jim Mills, Marty Stuart and many others, interspersed with video and audio of Scruggs over the years. The centerpiece is Stubbs’ intimate and thoughtful eulogy, which could only come from someone who knew him well.

Even long-time fans and serious students of the man who changed the banjo will come away with a deeper understanding of the one and only Earl Scruggs.
