Win Free Tickets to see Earl Scruggs

Earl Scruggs -- photo by Jim McGuireEarl Scruggs is a national treasure. He is one of the greatest musicians in American history, and seeing him live is a thrill. If you are a banjo player it’s extra special.

Our friend Cindy Baucom of Knee-Deep In Bluegrass, has teamed up with JohnBoy & Billy to produce an Earl Scruggs – Family & Friends concert in Charlotte, NC on Saturday April 11, 2009. To celebrate the event, Cindy has graciously given us 4 tickets to share with our readers.

Here’s the concert info.

Here’s how this is going to work. We have 4 tickets to give away, so we’re going to give away two pairs of tickets. That means you have two chances to win.

Between now and April 7, 2009 we’ll place the following text somewhere on the main page of Bluegrass Today, in blue.


When you see that text, be the first to email us at with the exact location of the text, and the tickets are yours. You must specify the location in order to win. For example, the text might appear directly below the search box in the left sidebar, or at the top of a particular post (in which case you will need to specify the title of the post).

We’ve used to preselect the dates and times for the two appearances of the winning notice.

Have fun, and keep an eye out for that winning text!
