Stephen Wade: Banjo Diary: Lessons from Tradition CD

  • $1699


Innovative and often surprising, Banjo Diary: Lessons from Tradition explores knowledge older musicians have bequeathed to younger players. Inspired by past banjo masters of frailing and of two- and three-finger styles, Stephen Wade, accompanied by Mike Craver, Russ Hooper, Danny Knicely, James Leva, and Zan McLeod, mines new creative possibilities with pump organ, piano, mandolin, fiddle, guitar, Dobro, rhumba box, washboard, and bass. This diary tells of an education written indelibly in a musician's heart. 58 minutes,
44-page booklet with extensive notes and photos.
