The father and innovator of modern banjo pickin’, Earl Scruggs, and his band breeze their way into Etown for this special encore taping which was recorded at Boulder’s historic Chautauqua Auditorium. Earl provides more than an ample portion of remarkable licks and partakes in an incredible, ‘up close and personal’ conversation with host Nick Forster about Earl’s amazing musical career. Also joining us are Etown faves and bluegrass homeboys, Hot Rize in a rare public appearance, cutting through some of their most popular tunes. With Pete Wernick, Tim O’Brien, Nick Forster and Bryan Sutton, the musical chemistry makes this show an audience favorite. Plus, another committed E-Chievement Award winner shares his experience with us… all for you, in Etown!
