Michael Miles—From Senegal to Seeger

Score: 0

Protest, passion, politics, poetry—the banjo is the voice of the people, and “From Senegal to Seeger” unshackles that voice. “From Senegal to Seeger” is a journey into Americana, a social and political portrait of America through the eyes of the banjo.

In this ninety-minute tour de force, Michael Miles performs on seven banjos, playing music that spans three hundred years and charts the transformation of the banjo from an African instrument to the quintessential expression of the American voice. Protest songs, fiddle tunes, minstrel sounds—a dazzling array of banjo playing forms the backbone of “From Senegal to Seeger,” but it is the poetic words of participants and Miles’s masterfully woven narrative that complete this portrait of the American experience.
