Bluegrass legend Curly Seckler is scheduled to participate in an Earl Scruggs Storytelling Session during the IBMA World of Bluegrass event in Nashville later this month. The session will take place on Tuesday, September 25, from 8:00 - 9:30 AM in the 3rd Floor Lounge in the Nashville Convention Center. Others scheduled to take part include Haskel McCormick, Gerald McCormick, and Kent Blanton (and probably a surprise guest or two).
This event will honor bluegrass icon Earl Scruggs, who passed away on March 28, 2012 at the age of 88. Seckler worked with Scruggs in the Foggy Mountain Boys from 1949 until 1962 (except for a couple of brief absences).
They can be seen performing together on the wonderful DVDs of the Flatt & Scruggs TV Show that have been released by Shanachie Records (available from our web site: www.curlyseckler.net). Seckler is the last surviving Foggy Mountain Boy from the group that appears on those DVDs. He will celebrate his 93rd birthday on December 25, 2012.
This event is free and open to the public, so tell your friends, and we hope to see you there! For more info about this and other IBMA events during World of Bluegrass week, visit: www.ibma.org
