Here is Earl Scruggs and Friends with some Foggy Mountain Breakdown.

(and yes, that is Steve Martin playing the 2nd banjo!)

Thanks for the thread OP, Earl Scruggs is one of my favorites.

That was an awesome video. I'm a fan from way back of Earl Scruggs. And Martin's not too shabby either.

Farewell Earl, you will be missed by many young and old. Another legend passes on. Now you can reunite with Lester and entertain folks in the next life. Until next time.
