Summary:
Mike Seeger, along with his wife Alexia Smith and filmmaker Yasha Aginsky, trekked through the Appalachian Mountains in 2009 to produce this extraordinary glimpse of the vigor and diversity of the region's old-time banjo artistry. When Seeger passed away later that same year, the project took on the added importance of paying tribute to this renowned musician, folklorist, and documentarian of the people. The project captures many banjo lineages, styles, and techniques: performed by 19 virtuosic banjo players in a package of two CDs compiled by Bob Carlin and a DVD by Aginsky.
