Ah, the banjo: As the one instrument rated and authorized for the artwork of duelin’, it’s not usually that we contemplate the common-or-garden dirtfiddle an particularly stress-free musical instrument—the work of noted master Kermit T. Frog however. And but, it’s Mr. Frog’s former co-star (and famous funnyman) Steve Martin who has reminded us that the identical banjo accountable for so many deaths, in so many Ken Burns documentaries, can be a instrument to appease a weary coronary heart.
Martin posted the above “Banjo balm” video to Twitter earlier at this time; there’s no phrases, simply the plinkety-plonk of a person who has devoted his life to a completely distinctive quantity of hours of enjoying the banjo. Technically spectacular, sonically calming, and never even sort of paying homage to being murdered within the woods whereas hanging out with Ned Beatty, the video is a reminder that the banjo can heal, in addition to hurt. In a time when many celebrities are providing their musical abilities to a world trapped of their houses, having Martin gently supply up his stylings, utterly sans ego, is an actual panacea.
What’s that? You hate the fucking banjo, regardless of who’s enjoying it? Properly, wonderful: Have this video of Sam Neill enjoying the ukulele, as a substitute. (Neill’s a rattling good Twitter comply with anyway, after all.)
