There has been a documentary in the works for quite a while now and it is apparently finished and will air Nov 4 at 9:00-pm on PBS.
The Banjo Project has a very nice website talking about this documentary and gives some preview video and audio clips, including some from our very own beloved Floyd County as well as clips from New York City jazz clubs and old time music jams. There is a lot on this website so go check it out and then make sure you are watching Nov 4 because this is going to be an interesting show.
The film is narrated by Steve Martin (who is a very good banjo player) and includes history, interviews and music. Don’t miss it!
P.S. Just in case you did miss it, you can watch it online now:
