I got the email from Banjo hangout about it on Tuesday! I made a hot date with my hubby to watch it.

Sounds awesome. I love Steve Martin, and I grew up listening to my grandfather play the banjo (and the guitar, and the piano, and the dulcimer, and the fiddle, and singing baritone, and ... well you get the picture). :)

U. G. H. You have no idea how much I wish I could see this! We went T.V. free when they made the switch to digital, and have never looked back. *sigh* It's a VERY rare thing for me to wish television back into our lives, but this is one of those occasions.

I don't have cable either, I have to watch everything online. I bet PBS will have this on their website to watch for free soon!

Whoa, you mean we can't watch if we don't have cable! We use an antenna. It's so funny, we watch so little television that I forget how it works. I'm sure my boys will help me figure out how to find it online.

Jenna, if you see it available to watch online, would you give an update? I have tried to see/find other things via the PBS website with mixed success.

Oh, I hope I can catch this. I've always liked bluegrass, folk music and mountain music, but never really delved into before. Many years have been music scarce in my life as I was raising three kids close in age. But I'm loving finding new stuff now!

My husband will want to see that, he loves Steve Martin! Steve Martin lives 30 min. from me and he hangs out in the coffee shop in Black Mountain very close to my home, I have drank a lot of coffee trying to see him, but I am never there at the right time!

Did you ever see Bela Fleck's journey to Africa to trace the roots of the banjo? I can't remember if I saw it on PBS or through Netflix. Here's a link to an NPR story on it.

I saw this in an email from Banjo hangout also. I auto tuned it on Direct TV and can't wait to watch it tomorrow night. My son, who is 10 wants a banjo and to take lessons, but we can't afford one. :(
Maybe some day.

Watched some of it last night, very informative and entertaining. I don't have a clue how they get their fingers to be so coordinated and fast.

It was really great. Some superb music and lots of neat archival footage (of course). I learned a lot and really enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for the notice about this show. I watched it Friday night and it was entertaining as well as very educational as to the origins of the banjo. The narration by Steve Martin was of course superb, and the intro by Roseanne Cash was a wonderful bonus! she looks awesome! How cool to watch so many accomplished players of present and days gone by. Brought back many good memories and I smiled from beginning to end of the show. Thanks again.
