FOLK ART IN HARMONY
At Masterpiece London 2013




A unique collection of five authentic early American primitive "Mountain Banjos" are to be exhibited at Masterpiece London 2013.

With direct provenance to the Private Collection of a Regional Southern American Arts and Culture Scholar, these whimsical and sculptural stringed instruments are rare surviving examples of a form derived from the iconic American Banjo.

"Mountain Banjos" as they were commonly known, helped form the spine of southern American Musical Culture in the nineteenth century. This group are in wonderful "as found" original condition, with elements of carved, incised and painted decoration, to their well handled and richly patinated surfaces. A noble and exciting quintet from the (blue) grass roots of American Country musical history.
