Foggy Bloggy Mountain Breakdown

I had a mental brainfart over on Theo Boehm's blog here.  We were talking about banjos and I mentioned a guy I'd seen playing recently.  The guy ID'd a song he played as "a chase scene from Bonnie and Clyde.  Heh
A little Internet research and I realized that it was Flatts and Scruggs playing Foggy Mountain Breakdown. Here's a video of Scruggs and some friends playing it:

Earl Scruggs. What a blessing he is to American music. He's getting up there in years now too.

  1. I rented a DVD from Netflix called Earl Scruggs: The Bluegrass Legend: Family & Friends.

    I highly recommend it. Scruggs was a master whose banjo playing extended far beyond bluegrass, into rock, folk, country and jazz.
