        Cluck Old Hen/I Had a Rooster | Early America

        Mike Seeger sings two folk songs about animals in traditional Southern style to maintain their distinct flavor. Both feature the banjo, a traditional gourd banjo on “Cluck Old Hen” and today’s steel-string banjo on “I Had a Rooster.” Seeger talks about the gourd banjo’s origins in Africa, discusses how it is made, and compares it to the modern steel banjo.

        This resource is part of the Early America collection.
