Earl Scruggs, Wilmington, Merlefest


The Kickin Grass Band is saddened by the passing of Earl Scruggs and thankful for his life and work. He was an inspiration to every member of our band and family. His pioneering musical art form lead to a progressive style of banjo playing that has encouraged countless others to play American Roots music. Because of this we need not worry about the future of this musical genre. Here’s to keeping bluegrass moving forward while celebrating the history and the traditioins of the music for we believe this is what Earl would want! We will miss you.

The Kickin Grass band will be playing a show tonight, Friday 3/30/12, at The Soapbox in Wilmington, NC with our great friends The Morning After. Tickets are only $7 and the show starts at 10pm with The Kickin Grass band taking the stage. Come on out! http://www.soapboxlaundrolounge.com
