Friday Factory Tune: I Ain’t Gonna Work Tomorrow

Lester Flatt (guitar) and Earl Scruggs (banjo), “I Ain’t Gonna Work Tomorrow,” the bluegrass predecessor of The Jam’s, “Here Comes the Weekend.”

We offer Flatt and Scruggs this week to mark adoption by the U.S. House of Representatives of H.Res. 583, “Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Lester Flatt has made an invaluable contribution to American art as both a songwriter and a performer, leaving an indelible legacy in bluegrass music.”

And wouldn’t it be cool if Olympics-bound skater Rachael Flatt were to do one of her routines to a Flatt and Scruggs song?
