“Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer should be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for putting this masterpiece together.”
– TONY TRISCHKA
The Old Time Banjo Festival is a unique anthology featuring twenty-one of today’s finest banjo players. From old traditional tunes and songs to contemporary compositions in many old time styles, each of these players places an original stamp on their banjo sound, showing the breadth and depth of an instrument that traveled from Africa to the southern Appalachian mountains, and is now played and appreciated worldwide. This first volume features mostly solo playing and singing, with some tracks also featuring accompaniment.
