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.
