The Best Of The Flatt & Scruggs TV Show: Vol. 1

Flatt and Scruggs are one of the 2 or 3 most respected and most popular bluegrass bands of all time.  Along with Bill Monroe, they propelled this great style into a wildly successful and artistically praised musical format. They left a legacy of wonderful recordings made in the 1950s and 1960s on both Columbia and Mercury and were star attractions on the Grand Ole Opry for many years.

Earl Scruggs, together with Bill Monroe, helped create the whole style of bluegrass. His highly influential new banjo style was the single most important factor in defining bluegrass and almost all other banjo players immediately jumped on the bandwagon, as did almost all new players for the next 50 years!

The Best Of The Flatt & Scruggs TV Show is a series of DVDs containing the best musical performances from a long lost TV Show that Flatt and Scruggs did in the 1950s and 1960s. Never available before, this footage features Flatt and Scruggs in their prime with their group The Foggy Mountain Boys playing many of their most famous songs as well as many other bluegrass classics.
