Earl Scruggs and his band, including his sons, took to the road in search of musicians and music that could push his banjo picking styles into new directions. He tried rock and roll, classical, bluegrass, country and mountain music. This programme was compiled from footage taken at The Grand Ole Opry, at the 1969 Vietnam War Moratorium in Washington D.C., and in private homes. The camera follows banjo maestro Earl Scruggs as he and his family travel and sing with music legends from both sides of a culture divide that only music could bridge.
