Each year we have an Arts festival at school. The theme I've chosen this year is, you guessed it, the banjo. I am going to take my students through the evolution of the the banjo with the songs that they sing. My third graders are going to sing "Old Dan Tucker."
I am looking for more information on the song. Many of the accounts I have ready contradict each other, and I am okay with sharing different points of view with my students. I would love your input on the history of the song.
Thanks, again, for helping me share banjo truths with my students.
