Flatt & Scruggs Red/Black Sandy Ridge High Poster
A bit of bluegrass memorabilia, some Flatt & Scruggs lore, and an advertisement for a show that never actually happened—it's all right here in this historic restrike.
Originally printed for an appearance by Flatt & Scruggs on March 7, 1969 at Sandy Ridge High School, a school that celebrates their connection to live music with an annual bluegrass concert, the show was never played. Even though the posters were already printed, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs broke up shortly before this scheduled appearance at Sandy Ridge High School, and were eventually replaced by the Osborne Brothers
The design features mid-twentieth century show poster layout, using wood and metal type, a hand-carved Grand Ole Opry banner block, plus a photoplate of Flatt & Scruggs, and it even includes printing plates of popular products from sponsor Martha White Flour.
