"Being a banjo player myself gives me a special appreciation for the amazing talent that Frank Lee demonstrations on gourd banjos. Frank's vocals blend beautifully on so many of the 14 tunes on 4 different banjos, with the tunings listed and the description of each banjo in the liner notes. I hope you enjoy the deep, haunting sounds from these banjos."
