Earl Scruggs Center

Back in the spring, our Forever Young group from church visited the Earl Scruggs Center in Shelby, but we didn’t stay long enough for some of us to see everything we wanted to see.  So yesterday Meg, Mike, & I headed back over to finish exploring all of the displays.  I remembered to take just a couple of pictures with my phone, so I could record it on here.  Not only did it have rooms about Earl Scruggs, there was also lots of history scattered throughout of the Shelby area and its people.  There were recorded interviews of people and how they lived growing up in the area that were very interesting.  I especially enjoyed this one.

In the upstairs gallery was an exhibit of paintings by David Colton, I believe his name was, who is a music photographer – he photographs bands and singers all over the world.  The main part of this exhibit was about singers and musicians from North Carolina, which was very cool, but I also enjoyed the little room of some of his favorite pictures of musicians and bands he’d photographed elsewhere.  This one about Johnny Cash was one of my favorites.
