        Banjo Today

        Methods of playing the banjo are still being invented today. Bill Keith first broke the style of playing barrier with his melodic fiddle tune style. The Sparrow Quartet is a string chamber ensemble built around the twin banjos of Abigail Washburn and Bela Fleck. In this performance, their music takes us on a journey from Kazakhstan to Kentucky, seamlessly blending a Kazakh folk melody that they heard in China with a familiar bluegrass song made famous by Kentucky’s Lily May Ledford. Discussion questions are available to support the video clip.
