Playing with people at least two or three times his age, Cutter really stood out with his impeccable banjo pickin’ skills.

“Foggy Mountain Breakdown” is a banjo pickin’ standard that was written by the legendary Earl Scruggs in 1940. It was used in the movie Bonnie and Clyde and was added to the National Recording Registry in 2004.
