A Gift for Fans of the Great George Shuffler

Buddy MeltonNashville, TN -- Fiddle and vocal virtuoso, Buddy Melton, and equally gifted pal, Milan Miller, have released a special recording of “The Boy From Valdese" as a tribute to Bluegrass giant, George Shuffler, who passed away earlier this week. "We couldn't think of a better way to honor George Shuffler than through the music he loved and so greatly influenced,” Melton says. “That was our intention in releasing this tribute."

The Boy from Valdese - A Tribute to George ShufflerLong before the Old Rock School became a popular stop for Bluegrass touring artists, hardcore fans of the genre knew the small town of Valdese, NC as the home of the legendary George Shuffler. Born on April 11, 1925, Shuffler is one of the most beloved and influential sidemen of Bluegrass’ first generation. His contributions to the bluegrass music include his “walking” style of playing the bass, and even more significant, his cross-picking style of guitar playing.
