Earl Taylor began playing professionally since 1953 around Baltimore, Maryland. Between 1955 and 1958 he played mandolin and sang tenor for Jimmy Martin, including recording "Hit Parade of Love" and other classics. During 1965 he performed with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs on both Harmonica and mandolin and has been associated with most of the finest bluegrass musicians at one time or another. In 1959 Earl and his boys became the first bluegrass band to play at Carnegie Hall, in a concert presented by Alan Lomax.
