Descending from West Africa and the Middle East, the banjo is an unmistakable part of country music’s sound. Participants will take a closer look at the banjo’s history, hear a banjo demonstration and learn about influential banjo player Earl Scruggs. Then, create their own miniature jar lid banjo craft inspired by Scruggs’s Gibson RB-Granada Mastertone banjo in the museum’s Precious Jewel exhibit. A member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Scruggs’s invented a banjo picking style that became an essential building block of bluegrass.
