Black Banjo Reunion

Here's a piece for my friends at the Charlotte Folk Society.  A few years ago they helped organize the Black Banjo Then & Now Gathering, a historic event remembering and celebrating the African-American history of the banjo.  It was an amazing weekend where I was able to meet national treasures like Joe Thompson and was even able to sit in on some jam sessions between the folks who would become the Carolina Chocolate Drops.  The Gathering is happening again this year at Appalachian State University, with a weekend-closer in Charlotte.
