By now, just about everyone whos heard of Chris Scruggs is familiar with his country-music heritageand if his surname doesnt tip you off as to what legacy hes a part of, well, just forget it. But Scruggs offers more than simply the Nashville royalty embedded in his DNA. As part of the acclaimed rockabilly troupe BR549 and as a solo artist, his unique chicken-pickin and neotraditional crooning give Scruggs a style all his own. According to the folks at the Country Music Hall of Fame, Scruggs performance will be a solo steel guitar demonstration, meaning that while it wont be a typical gig for this guitar-toting student of Western swing, hes sure to bring some of his trademark youthful energy and finesse to an instrument as iconic as the Hall of Fame itself. The demo is included with the price of museum admission and free for CoMu members.
