See my entire film at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002MINVE . Or watch this clip from the same session - https://youtu.be/te_OoPaEFK0 . My classic 90 minute music documentary records Earl Scruggs and Bill Monroe and Earl and his son Randy and Doc Watson and his son Merle, in informal scenes playing & singing together. If you love Doc Watson and Bill Monroe and old time Bluegrass Music, you will love watching and listening to this. In 1972, PBS prime-timed a documentary music special on Earl Scruggs the bluegrass banjo picker. It included Bob Dylan, The Byrds, Bill Monroe, Charlie Daniels, The Morris Brothers, and Doc Watson. The film was not available to the public for over 30 years. Now it is available again. Said Bruce Elder of The All Music Guide: "Earl Scruggs was a few years past his partnership with Lester Flatt when made did 'Earl Scruggs: The Bluegrass Banjo Legend' a filled with stars effort that succeeds. There are great scenes at the Grand Ole Opry with Bill Monroe, at the homes of Doc Watson and members of Earl's North Carolina family, at the The Byrds ranch, at the home of The Morris Brothers (Salty Dog Blues), in Carmel, NY with Bob Dylan, etc. etc. The music here is glorious." Earl Scruggs: The Bluegrass Legend is the only full-length film on Earl's life & times. #docwatson #earlscruggs #cripplecreek #banjo #northcarolina

In 1965, I did 6 episodes of a public TV series for children called "What's New." I presented folk songs from all over the world, and many instruments, to the best of my ability at the time. We shot these episodes at Brooklyn College and Joan Sheppard was the director.

Flatt and Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys are my favorite Bluegrass group. This is a beautiful Bluegrass gospel song that features Earl Scruggs playing lead guitar instead of his usual 5 string. You can buy DVDs of their old Martha White Grand Ole Opry shows. There are currently 6 of them. Go to http://earlscruggs.com, click on Merchandise, and scroll down the list. I am not associated with the DVDs, Flatt and Scruggs, or that website, just a long-time huge fan.

This is probably the most famous and most widely performed American folk song. Just about any instruction book on how to play either bluegrass or traditional American music on the banjo, violin/fiddle, guitar, or mandolin will have Cripple Creek near the beginning. Richard Matteson provides a long list of recording artists who have recorded Cripple Creek: http://www.mattesonart.com/cripple-creek-song-history.aspx And, David Viney provides a history of the song: http://theband.hiof.no/articles/up_on_cripple_creek_viney.html Given the rather bawdy and salacious character of some of the song lyrics, I tend to regard Cripple Creek, Colorado as the location referenced by the song. As described in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvIieHZhYMs Cripple Creek was a booming mining town from about the 1890s to the 1920s. Just about every imaginable vice was available in the city, including (gasp!) gambling, sex, drugs, theaters, and rock and roll! You may read about Paula de Vere, Cripple Creek's best remembered Madame, here: http://www.mountainjackpot.com/2013/11/24/cripple-creeks-fabulous-pearl-de-vere/ Cripple Creek eventually lost a lot of its population and turned into something of a ghost town, with plenty of abandoned buildings. However, since the 1990s, legalized gambling has caused Cripple Creek, once again, to become a boom town, with (gasp!) gambling, sex, drugs, theaters, and rock and roll! Here is Tracy Newman: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ew6DS2bXYmk And here is Buffy Sainte-Marie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXkM11kp_tg I obviously wasn't joking about the lewd origins of the song, although these ladies would have interpreted the lyrics innocently enough. For a lot of performers, especially of the Bluegrass genre, the emphasis is on demonstrating technical mastery of one's instrument, and actually singing in a way that the audience can understand the words is deprecated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQpu2Zk1SYQ Anyway, here are my lyrics I got a gal and she loves me, She's as sweet as a bumble bee, She's got eyes of baby blue, Makes my gun shoot straight and true. CHORUS: Goin' up Cripple Creek goin' in a run Goin' up Cripple Creek to have a little fun. Goin’ up Cripple Creek, goin’ in a whirl, Goin’ up Cripple Creek, to find me a girl. I went down To Cripple Creek, To see what them gals were having to drink. Got so drunk, I fell against the wall, The old corn liqueur was the cause of it all. See them women sitting in the shade, Waiting for the money that the miners have made. Pearl de Vere runs the Old Homestead The finest brothel with the comfiest beds When Cripple Creek girls are about half-grown, They jump on a man like a dog on a bone. Drop my pants below my knees, Come on Cripple Creek when I please. My gal works in Cripple Creek, I can’t afford to see her more than once a week Kisses on the mouth, just as sweet as any wine, Wraps herself around me like a sweet potato vine. I married a wife in the month of June, Married her up by the light of the moon. Last night I lost her in a game of cards Finding another one shouldn’t be too hard

This version of The Swimming Song is from The Earl Scruggs Review album. Loudon sings lead, but the banjo is 3-finger banjo played by Earl. Lyrics This summer I went swimming This summer I might have drowned But I held my breath, I kicked my feet Moved my arms around I moved my arms around This summer I swam in the ocean And I swam in a swimming pool Salt my wounds, chlorined my eyes I'm a self-destructive fool Self-destructive fool This summer I did the back stroke And you know that that's not all I did the breast stroke, the butterfly And the old Australian crawl The old Australian crawl This summer I swam in a public place And a reservoir to boot At the latter I was informal At the former I wore my suit I wore my swimming suit Oh, this summer I did swan dives And jack-knives for you all And once when you weren't looking I did a cannon-ball I did a cannon-ball This summer I went swimming This summer I might have drowned But I held my breath, I kicked my feet And moved my arms around I moved my arms around

Earl Scruggs is the great innovator and master of the 5-string banjo; but many do not know that he was (is) also excellent on the guitar. This song, Jimmy Brown the Newsboy, features Earl on lead guitar. Earl said that he learned a lot about guitar from his friend and neighbor, Mama Maybelle Carter. His style is very similar, except for finger movement. Enjoy! If you are interested, you may purchase DVDs of these old Martha White Grand Ole Opry shows at http://earlscruggs.com, click on Merchandise, and scroll down to find them. I have no association with them or with Flatt and Scruggs, except as a long-time fan.

One of the greatest instrumentals ever recorded. The 1949 recording was used in the movie Bonnie and Clyde and then re-recorded after the film. The original version, in my opinion, was far superior to the more familier version that most people know and play today. It's faster, there were no breaks and the noting was more complicated. Earl Scruggs at his very best.
