Joe Ayers, who will be part of the Heritage Harvest Festival (for which WTJU is the official music sponsor) at Monticello on September 11, will stop by Tell Us A Tale with his gourd banjo. He will perform pieces from the early to mid 1800s, and talk about the history of the banjo, and how people made banjos (and other instruments) from the gourd and other things you might find around your home.
