Banjo Playing on a Sunday Morning

There’s nothing like waking up to banjo music. This morning my clock-radio, set to NPR, gave me that joy.

Half asleep, I heard one of the three banjo players being interviewed talking about how he started playing banjo with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and he’d wear a arrow on his head. “Huh?” was my sleepy reaction. “What, he’s a Steve Martin copy?” No, he wasn’t a copy — it was Steve Martin.

Tony Trischka, Bela Fleck, and Steve Martin were the interviewees discussing a new album of banjo duets.  Funny and tuneful. It’s a great segment from NPR. Take a listen, especially if you need some banjo music to get you going this chilly Sunday morning.
