Earl Scruggs has died at 88

Earl Scruggs revolutionized banjo playing while in Bill Monroe’s band in the 1940s, and then, with Lester Flatt, formed one of the greatest country, string, or bluegrass bands of all time.  He died at age 88 today.

Here are Flatt and Scruggs, “Rolling in My Sweet Baby’s Arms.”
