Award-winning banjoist, fiddler, and singer Jake Blount, a 2020 recipient of the Steve Martin Banjo Prize, specializes in the music of Black and indigenous communities in the southeastern United States, the regional style of Ithaca, New York, and highlights the experiences of queer people, and people of color in his work.
Through song, and in conversation with folklorist, and clawhammer banjo player Brad Kolodner, Blountshares his unique style, and gives an unprecedented testament to the voices - paradoxically obscured yet profoundly ingrained - in the Appalachian music tradition.
