The Foggy Mountain Boys

Profile:
An American bluegrass band. The band was founded by guitarist Lester Flatt and banjo player Earl Scruggs. Because of the personnel, particularly Scruggs, who has since become iconic in music history for his masterful handling of the banjo, the group is considered one of the premier bluegrass groups in the history of the genre. Originally formed in 1948 by Flatt, who brought Scruggs with him shortly after leaving Bill Monroe’s bluegrass band. Historically, Monroe is considered a premier innovator of the musical genre of bluegrass, with the many early successes that promoted bluegrass to a higher interest.

Flatt & Scruggs and The Foggy Mountain Boys (in various forms and line-ups) recorded and performed together up until 1969.
