Video Title:
Rhiannon Giddens - "Georgia Buck" [Just Around The Bend - Mike Seeger's Last Documentary]
In the second single and video from Mike Seeger’s 'Just Around The Bend,' Rhiannon Giddens performs "Georgia Buck," a tune closely associated with African American musicians from the Piedmont. Rhiannon and Mike Seeger discuss the importance of making and living "home-made" music in the 21st-century, and what drew her to clawhammer banjo. 'Just Around the Bend: Survival and Revival in Southern Banjo Styles – Mike Seeger’s Last Documentary' 2-CD and DVD set available September 20, 2020. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: Bandcamp: All other platforms: Mike Seeger, along with his wife Alexia Smith and filmmaker Yasha Aginsky, trekked through the Appalachian Mountains in 2009 to produce this extraordinary glimpse of the vigor and diversity of the region’s old-time banjo artistry. When Seeger passed away later that same year, the project took on the added importance of paying tribute to this renowned musician, folklorist, and documentarian of the people. Just Around the Bend: Survival and Revival in Southern Banjo Sounds captures many banjo lineages, styles, and techniques—performed by 19 virtuosic banjo players—in a package of two CDs compiled by Bob Carlin and a DVD by Aginsky. 110 minutes of music in 2 CDs; 80-page book with extensive notes, 110 minute DVD.
