Featuring such banjo greats as Béla Fleck, Earl Scruggs, and Taj Mahal, Give Me the Banjo delves into the complex history of the banjo, from its origins in Africa and its development in early America to the present day. 

Join us post-screening for a Q&A with film producer Marc Fields, banjo artists residency manager Dave Hollender, and visiting artists Bill Keith and Tony Trischka. (Hang around long enough and they just might play you a tune or two.)
