On Saturday, September 21, George Shuffler will be inducted into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame. George grew up in Burke County, NC where he taught himself to play on a mail-order guitar. He made his Grand Ole Opry debut at the age of 17 performing with The Bailey Brothers. George toured 20 years with the Stanley Brothers where he developed his unique cross picking guitar style that has been a big influence to many musicians. He was inducted into the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Hall of Fame in 2011 and was a recipient of the North Carolina Heritage Award in 2007.
