The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will celebrate Bluegrass Music Hall of Famer Curly Seckler during a Saturday, Dec. 4 program at 1:30 p.m.

Seckler, who turns 91 on Christmas day, sang harmony vocals on classic Flatt & Scruggs hits including “Salty Dog Blues,” “Roll in My Sweet Baby’s Arms” and “I’ll go Stepping Too.” He was also a part of Lester Flatt’s Nashville Grass band, and led that group after Flatt’s 1979 death. He remains an in-demand live attraction, performing at MerleFest, the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival and other high-profile events.

SIRIUS XM radio’s Kyle Cantrell will interview Seckler on December 4, and Seckler will perform several signature songs.

The event is included with Museum admission and is free to Museum members. For more information, check www.countrymusichalloffame.org or call 416‑2001.
