Here is the Lost Heritage of the Irish-American Banjo! The Irish-style Tenor banjo has become immensely popular of late yet the roots of Irish influence on American Banjo music extends right back to the 1840s when the legendary Joel Sweeney picked up a gourd Banjo from Black American Banjo players and proceeded to perform 'jigs reels and breakdowns'. Other Irish-Americans played a leading role in the development and popularity of theBanjo in America and Rob MacKillop has collected 27 of their finest pieces in this collection the first of its kind.
