A most diverse banjo recording ranging from classical to jazz to Bluegrass combined with original songs in the highest singer-songwriter tradition. This recording sets out to expand the musical possibilities of 5-string banjo repertoire in the instrumental and lyrical categories. The poetic and socially significant lyrics are enhanced by the accompanying banjo while many classical instrumentals are given renderings worthy of a virtuoso, yet accessible to all listeners.
