Festivals pay tribute to Louise Scruggs

Louise Scruggs, wife and business manager of bluegrass superstar Earl Scruggs, was memorialized today at the Ryman auditorium. The obituary in the Nashville Tennessean credits her with moving bluegrass from a niche style to a crossover genre with an impact on folk, rock and other mainstream musical audiences. Among the venues she supported were music festivals such as Telluride and Grey Fox. She is being remembered fondly on both festivals' email lists today.
