Ivory Toad of Catalan

Just happened to tune into National Public Radio this morning to hear listener letters sent in this week on a program segment that was broadcast last Sunday, January 21st, a promo spot for Double Banjo Bluegrass Spectacular (2007), a new album by Banjo master Tony Trischka. Along for the ride were fellow Banjo superstars Steve Martin and Bela Fleck. What a great show. You can listen to the NPR segment here.

A few studio only tracks presenting the licks and chops of Martin, Fleck, & Trischka (including one original Beatnick Banjo Poem) are also available from the NPR page, one of which I liberated from real media format, for sharing purposes below (via MOG player). Enjoy. (Ivory Toad of Catalan by Bela Fleck and Tony Trischka).
