VARIOUS 'Banjo Bash At Buckeystown' JDWS-002-DVD
We reviewed this when it came out as a VHS Videocassette in 1998: now that it is available in DVD form it's worth mentioning again. It is quite impressive to see the huge number of banjo pickers (professional and amateur) who turned out for this monster jam that took place at a farm in Maryland. There are around 25 pickers featured, both Bluegrass and Old-Time. Most recognizable are names like Tony Trischka, Eddie Adcock, Bill Emerson and Mark Johnson, Tony Ellis, Mike Seeger, Bill Keith, Reed Martin, Leroy Troy, Bela Fleck, Murphy Henry and Bruce Molsky. Most of the footage (especially that shot outside) is in vivid, sharp color, and the sound quality ranged from good to excellent. This is a neat item for aspiring banjo pickers of all ilks.
