When Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs first formed their legendary bluegrass group the Foggy Mountain Boys in 1948, the duo had already left an unforgettable mark on the history of the then-burgeoning genre as members of Bill Monroe' pioneering band. But with their own group, the duo would transform bluegrass and solidify its signature sound, thanks to Scruggs' famous three-finger banjo-picking style and Flatt's fast-paced rhythm guitar and high-lonesome vocals. The duo performed together for more than two decades, during which time they became the country's foremost representatives of bluegrass, before splitting up, largely due to musical differences, in 1969. Before the breakup, however, the group released four Top Ten country albums and left behind an indelible legacy of bluegrass standards that still define the genre a half-century later. "If it wasn’t for Earl Scruggs," John Hartford once said, weighing in on the debate over who originated bluegrass-style banjo, "you wouldn’t be worried about who invented it." Jonathan Bernstein

An obituary last Thursday about the bluegrass banjo player Earl Scruggs misidentified the group he performed with at the first Newport Folk Festival, in 1959. Although he and the guitarist Lester Flatt were co-leaders of the Foggy Mountain Boys at the time, Mr. Scruggs performed with a different group, Hylo Brown and the Timberliners, at that year’s festival.
