Directed by Marc Fields. Narrated by Steve Martin, The Banjo Project: The Story of Americas Instrument is a cross-media cultural odyssey: a major television documentary, a live stage/multi-media performance with Tony Trischka, and a website that chronicle the journey of Americas quintessential instrument—the banjo—from its African roots to the 21st century. The Banjo Project television documentary brings together contemporary players in all styles—Earl Scruggs, Pete Seeger, Bela Fleck, Taj Mahal, Ralph Stanley, Abigail Washburn, Mike Seeger, Don Vappie and Cynthia Sayer, among many others—with folklorists, historians, instrument makers and passionate amateurs to tell the story of Americas instrument in all its richness and diversity.
