Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

The banjo has been an emblem of American culture for centuries. Yet few realize the instrument's complicated, checkered past, one that illuminates a fledgling nation coming into being. Featuring such banjo greats as Bela Fleck, Earl Scruggs, and Taj Mahal, "Give Me The Banjo" delves into the complex history of the banjo, from its origins in Africa and its development in early America to the present day. A wide variety of banjo experts - including music historians, instrument-makers, folklorists, and players of all styles - come together to tell the comprehensive history of the banjo, while also discussing the instrument's influence on a vast array of musical styles, including ragtime, jazz, and country. Narrated by banjo enthusiast Steve Martin, "Give Me The Banjo" celebrates the fascinating history and the cultural richness of one of America's most enduring instruments.

30 Minutes of Extended Performances from Taj Mahal, Cynthia Sayer, Ralph Stanley, Riley Baugus and Rhiannon Giddens, Profile of Uncle Dave Macon.
