Enjoy a lighthearted visit with Gordy Ohliger, the celebrated musical historian, in a concert spanning the history of our American instrument. He utilizes rare vintage instruments to perform in every banjo style from the struttin' ragtime and funky minstrel songs of the 1800's, through the tender melodies, hot jazz, and novelty vaudeville of the early 20th century. Bringing an infectious joy to his performance with a running Mark Twain–like commentary, his shows illuminate not only the hidden delicacy of the instrument, but also offer insights into the daily lives of our ancestors. The DVD is enhanced with a friendly visit to his banjo collection, a demonstration of the different tonal qualities of 19th century banjos, and additional songs performed in relaxed studio sessions. These musical extras include a long-lost playing style, novelty story-songs, and one of his delicate originals. What we have here, is a fun laughin' and learnin' video.
