Mike Seeger has spent the better part of 50 years unearthing and performing traditional American music. A former trustee of the Newport Folk Festival--as well as the son of renowned musicologist Charles and half brother to folk music icon Pete, Seeger is one of the nation's leaders in the performance and history of the banjo. Given the difficulty of presenting an exhaustive labor of scholarship and music and still making it interesting for the lay listener, SOUTHERN BANJO SONGS is a marvel. Rather than dissolving into dull study of an increasingly archaic instrument, SOUTHERN BANJO SONGS is an energetic, rigorous and ultimately fascinating exploration into the myriad of American banjo sounds and styles.
Musically, Seeger is plowing well-worn territory here, covering beyond-chestnuts like "Jim Crack Corn," "Flop Eared Mule," and "Wabash Blues." But SOUTHERN BANJO SONGS will appeal to any serious banjo player or folk music listener. Additionally, the excellent package design and Seeger-penned commentary behind each song is impressive and educational.
