This is a most impressive 2-CD set that features no less than 40 tunes by as many artists. Produced by a Maryland label, the pickers chosen for the set are all from the Washington, D.C. or Baltimore areas, and include such names as Walt Hensley, Chris Warner, Eddie Adcock, Tom Adams, Murphy Henry, and last year's IBMA banjo player of the year, Mike Munford. The set also includes old time pickers such as Reed Martin, Stephen Wade, Paul Brown and Mark Schatz, and contains an excellent 40 page booklet of notes. The backing includes top-flight work by musicians like Jesse Brock, Michael Cleveland, David McLaughlin and others. A really neat set that should appeal to any 5-string banjo picker or fan.
