About the artist

Lester Flatt - Born June 19, 1914

Widely considered bluegrass music's premier singer, Lester Flatt was born and
lived his early childhood in a clapboard cabin overlooking a spectacular
mountain valley atop Tennessee's Cumberland Plateau.

With Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys in the mid '40s, Lester Flatt was a member of
what many refer to as the "Original Blue Grass Band."

With Earl Scruggs, Flatt organized the "Foggy Mountain Boys" in 1948 and went
on to achieve long standing success and prestige unprecedented in bluegrass

"Lester and Earl" became a way of life to countless fans through their own
syndicated TV show, several hundred recordings and on WSM's Grand Ole Opry.

Often appearing before a nationwide television audience, Flatt preferred to
perform his music in front of his own kind of people in rural hamlets and small

Parting with Earl in 1969, Lester continued successfully with his own "Nashville
Grass" until shortly before his death in 1979.
