Presentation to Jim Shumate - First fiddler with Flatt and Scruggs

Several years ago I got to introduce Jim Shumate at a festival in Raleigh NC. I had framed a collage of the photos from Flatt and Scruggs first songbook which featured Jim as the fiddle player. He was deeply moved and was very appreciative. Jim is a great person and still can wear a fiddle out and entertain a crowd with his playing and singing!

Framed photo I did for Earl Scruggs

This is a framed collage I did and presented to Earl at the Country Music Hall of Fame. It is a very large picture.

It shows all the groups Earl ever played with. The one square without a photo was for the Carolina Wildcats but no photos of Earl with that group have surfaced.

He really liked it and said he was going to hang it in his home. It was great getting to meet him and Louise.
