Riley Baugus - "Sally Ann" [Just Around The Bend - Mike Seeger's Last Documentary]
In the first single and video from Mike Seeger’s 'Just Around The Bend,' Riley Baugus performs "Sally Ann." This song demonstrates the Round Peak style of clawhammer banjo, prevalent in Surry County, North Carolina, and popularized by such players as Tommy Jarrell and Fred Cockerham. '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. 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.
