Gottschalk Encore: The Banjo on….The Banjo!

Suddenly you have a whole new understanding / appreciation of Gottschalk’s piece when you hear it “reverse engineered,” as it is here by musician / instrument builder Paul Ely Smith.

Marvel at this! And then go the “Press” section of his website to read his article in the journal Current MusicologyC titled  “Gottschalk’s “The Banjo” and the Banjo in the 19th Century.”

Fascinating stuff.
