Scott Ainslie came of age during the Civil Rights era, and cultivated a powerful affinity for cross-cultural exchange. He has studied with elder musicians on both sides of the color line, in the old-time southern Appalachian fiddle and banjo traditions, as well as Black gospel and blues. He plays this music with affection, authority, and power. Armed with a variety of instruments -- vintage guitars, a fretless gourd banjo, a one-string, homemade diddley bow (cigar box guitar) -- and carefully chosen personal anecdotes of his encounters with senior musicians across the South, Ainslie explores the African and European roots of American music and culture, bringing the musical history of America alive.
