January 6, 1924 Happy Birthday Earl Scruggs!
Blue Moon of Kentucky was written by Bill Monroe, and his band The Blue Grass Boys, with Earl Scruggs and Lester Flatt recorded it. These 3 guys began the Bluegrass Movement and have influenced me and thousand other musicians.
One of my musicians who was playing Claudia’s and my new song Time Machine, said “Hey Skip this so Newgrass!” I never heard this term for this genre of new blugrass, but i like it.
Newgrass. I’m gonna go with it to explain some of my style. But Blue Moon of Kentucky is as oldgrass as it comes, and i love it!
