In the instrumental food chain, the five-string banjo is one of the more dominant beasts: loud, brash and very hard to tame. In 1945, Earl Scruggs made the biggest leap in harnessing its raw power, bringing a
revolutionary precision of touch and depth of tone. Thousands of three-finger style banjo players have since made their marks, but none has cut such a path or moved so far along it as has Alison Brown.
She’s acclaimed as one of today’s finest progressive banjo players, but you rarely find her in a conventional bluegrass setting.
Instead, she’s known for leading an ensemble that successfully marries a broad array of roots-influenced music: folk, jazz, Celtic and Latin. Whether or not you like the sound of the banjo, take a chance and come tonight. It will change the way you think about the instrument.
