Earl Scruggs Returns To Ryman


In the 1940s, Earl Scruggs was one of the premier bluegrass artists who helped shape the genre during his performances onstage at the Ryman Auditorium with Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys band.

The 86-year-old performer and his famous banjo will return to the Ryman stage on July 22 as part of the Springer Mountain Farms Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman series. He will be joined by bluegrass newcomer Sarah Jarosz.

"2010 marks the 65th anniversary of Mr. Scruggs’ first performance on the Ryman stage with Bill Monroe. That historic night laid the foundation for the definitive sound of bluegrass for generations to come. We’re honored to welcome him back to the Ryman to be part of Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman,” remarked Ryman Auditorium General Manager, Sally Williams.
