They are going to be here in Frederick in about 2 weeks. We got tickets as soon as they came out, I'm really looking forward to it.

I wonder if he actually plays that big minstrel banjo in the picture on the recording?

I guessing they will bring a bunch of banjos to play, it looks like they will be all over the country, maybe some others will get to see them and give their take on the show /  cd.

So the answer is no, Bela did not play the banjo on the CD cover, though Abby played a fretless some, and they used a varity of insturments. Most of the music was original, what was traditional was arraigned, as one would have expected, in a fairly progressive fashion. It was refreshing to hear the  he sound of just the two banjos and they blended their styles quite skillfully. I thoroughly enjoyed this concert.
