Spirit of Sweeney Civil War Era Banjo CD

Spirit of Sweeney

Recorded by Appomattox Court House National Historical Park employee Corbin Hayslett, this collection of songs is inspired by Joel Sweeney, a pioneer in banjo playing.  At the Appalachian String Band Festival, he won second place in the adult old-time banjo contest when he was just 16.  This collection of songs showcases his enormous talent for a musical style not often heard in this day and age, with great historical accuracy and integrity.
