  • $15.00


Trischka, coming off a very successful Rounder album that had him paired with numerous top banjo pickers, follows up with this well done and interesting 21-tune collection that shows up, surprisingly, on the Smithsonian Folkways label. Tunes range from an old gourd banjo solo to full Bluegrass treatment of MOLLY & TENBROOKS—(well played apart from a flaky vocal by Michael Daves). Most of the tunes simply feature Trischka’s banjo, unaccompanied, on tunes like ZOE, JOHN COHEN’S BLUES, SEAN, LAKE FLORA and a couple of nice medleys. There are significant other artists on some tunes, and these include Pete Seeger, Mike Seeger, (a nice NOAH CAME TO EDEN), Bruce Molsky, Brittany Haas, Bill Evans, and even Bill Keith, among others. Creative, interesting work by a veteran artist who is at his peak.
