Those Ragtime Banjos

Though known first as a piano genre, the earliest recordings of ragtime feature five-string banjo and military concert bands. This collection provides a sampling of ragtime banjo performances, including work by five-string virtuosos Fred Van Eps and Vess L. Ossman and by innovators on the four-string tenor banjo.
