Banjo Spirits explores the legacy of the banjo through the eyes of Don Stover and Stephen Wade. Don Stover learned to play the banjo from his mother in Artie, West Virginia, where he was born in 1928. Don grew up and worked in the local coal mines, but the banjo proved to be his ticket out of the area. Don played with Buzz Buzby, the Lilly Brothers, and Bill Monroe. Stephen Wade was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1953. After apprenticing for Fleming Brown and serving as accompanist to Doc Hopkins, Stephen is best know for "Banjo Dancing", his long-running one man show. Stephen is also known as a record producer.
