Walk inside, and it’s part museum, part absolutely-awesome traveling quarters: Don Clark’s 1955 Flixible bus has everything from a dress made from Martha White flour sacks to a door decorated with hundreds of bluegrass musicians’ signatures (including the lovely cursive of the late John Hartford). There’s wood from the homestead of Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs, to boot.
Clark and crew stopped in downtown Asheville for a few hours before heading on to Morganton for the Red, White & Bluegrass festival. Curious onlookers stepped aboard for a bit to browse. Xpress talked to Clark about the Bluegrass Bus.
