Rhiannon Giddens: "Julie" (original)

How great is this? Oh, sorry, not polite to ask too many questions. This performance is great!

I love the singer and the delivery, but forgive me if I am overly impressed with this instrument, the likes of which I have neither seen nor heard before. A five-stringed banjo with nylon strings and a fretless neck? That's a new one on me. I love the low register and the mellow tone, though. The entire presentation is almost familiar in a quite unfamiliar way.

Thanks, Ms. Giddens.
