Film and live music today marry bluegrass and African styles

In “Throw Down Your Heart,” master banjo player Béla Fleck explores the origins of the banjo in African string instruments, traveling to several countries in East Africa and West Africa and playing with local musicians. In a short set before a screening of that movie today, local musicians John “Musemason” Mason and Cary Kamperschroer will play a short set exploring a similar theme.
