We've teamed up with Come Hear NC on a podcast series that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. This week, Executive Director of Pinecone William Lewis talks with us about the legacy of Earl Scruggs and his song 'Foggy Mountain Breakdown.' It's a tune that is as relevant at bluegrass festivals today as it was when it was written in 1949.
