One of my favorite songs on Wood & Wire’s album The Coast is Elucidationby banjo player Trevor Smith. It is an instrumental that demonstrates the incredible skill of each band member and highlights the banjo. Trevor, from Tuscon, Arizona grew up playing classical piano but after attending his first bluegrass festival he was perplexed by the sound of the banjo. He picked it up, mastered it, and later added guitar and mandolin to his talents.
