    Tony Trischka In Concert (Banjo Great!)

    Tony Trischka (United States Artists Friends Fellow-2012) is considered to be the consummate banjo artist and perhaps the most influential banjo player in the roots music world.

    Tony Trischka (United States Artists Friends Fellow-2012) is considered to be the consummate banjo artist and perhaps the most influential banjo player in the roots music world. For more than 45 years, his stylings have inspired a whole generation of bluegrass and acoustic musicians with the many voices he has brought to the instrument. “It’s kind of hard to pin down, because there’s so much on it,” Tony Trischka says of his new Rounder album Great Big World. “It’s all over the place, which is kind of where I live.” In a consistently adventurous musical career that spans nearly half a century, Tony Trischka has established himself as both a wildly inventive recording artist and one of America’s foremost visionaries of the five-string banjo. Widely regarded as the most innovative banjoist of his generation, Trischka’s dexterity and restless creative spirit have inspired generations of fans, and his influence in igniting the world of progressive acoustic music permanently altered the face of American roots music. Trischka’s instrumental expertise and boundless imagination are as sharp as ever on Great Big World. One of the most ambitious and accomplished of the artist’s career, the album is a deeply compelling showcase for his expansive instrumental talents, far-ranging musical interests and distinctive songwriting skills, as well as his sterling taste in collaborators. The 13-track set finds Trischka embracing all manner of possibilities, while keeping one foot firmly planted in the traditional bluegrass roots that first inspired him to make music.
