A Banjo Song & The Last Rose of Summer
In this episode, Archivist Maureen Nevins and Canada's History Editor-in-Chief Mark Reid listen to two recordings that both feature displays of virtuosic talent on two very different stringed instruments: the banjo and the violin. "A Banjo Song" also includes a remarkable vocal performance, while "The Last Rose of Summer" from 1916 is the earliest recording to be featured on the podcast so far.
