Music Millennium

The banjo is a “bigger than life” instrument, a sym- bol of deep southern American heritage. At the same time, beneath its veneer of old-time icon, the story of the banjo is one of enormous creativity and adap- tation to many musical traditions around the world- -from Africa, to the Caribbean, to North America, to Europe, and beyond. In Classic Banjo from Smithsonian Folkways, banjo connoisseurs Greg Adams and Jeff Place cull 30 gems of banjo artistry from more than 300 albums in the Folkways collections, offer- ing a gateway into the deep and varied veins of banjo history. 30 tracks, 64 minutes, 44-page booklet with extensive notes and photos.
