Various Artists - Classic Banjo From Smithsonian Folkways

Classic Banjo from Smithsonian Folkways is a tribute to the instrument that has shaped the personality, sound, and form of American music like few others. Beneath its veneer of old-time icon, the story of the banjo is one of enormous creativity and adaptation to many musical traditions around the world.

The album was recently featured on the Wall Street Journal's Speakeasy blog and the Los Angeles Times' Pop & Hiss blog. The upcoming edition of Banjo Newsletter enthusiastically recommends, 'If you enjoy CDs of banjo music without narrow parameters... this one is for you.'
