Banjo! The All-American Instrument

A Road Scholar program by Mark Dvorak

A concert packed with interesting stories about the origin and evolution of this uniquely American instrument, the history of old-time minstrel shows, and of course, some stories and songs from the masters of the banjo, from old mountain styles to Earl Scruggs and Pete Seeger.
