About The Earls of Leicester
The Earls of Leicester are an all-star “who’s who” of bluegrass and roots music, featuring Jerry Douglas, Shawn Camp, Johnny Warren, Charlie Cushman, Barry Bales, and Ronnie McCoury. These like-minded musicians will band together for a rare evening to recreate the iconic music of Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys.
They will play selections from the era of 1954 to 1965. During these the years, the band was comprised of Lester, Earl, dobro player Josh Graves, Fiddler Paul Warren, tenor singer and mandolinist Curly Seckler, and bass player Jake Tullock.
The band’s mission is to remind people of what an amazing impact Flatt and Scruggs had on the music that each of the Earls put forth in their separate endeavors in these highly-charged musical times.
