      the music was great but the audio was poor and not in sync with the video. But it was great to see these guys again

      Performance was great. The 3 stars reflect very poor audio and video. This was my first concert window, so perhaps there all like that? I will try another to see. I really love the concept. I would like to be able in the future be able to play it back again. All in all very cool.

Fiddler Alan Jabbour and banjoist Ken Perlman present a program of Appalachian tunes, featuring most prominently the music Alan learned in the 1960s from his mentor, West Virginia fiddler Henry Reed. Stories that evoke the lives and cultural milieu of Reed and his contemporaries add an extra dimension to the presentation.

Alan and Ken have redefined that great American invention, the fiddle-banjo duet, and brought it to new heights of complexity. Alan’s powerful fiddling style, with its syncopated bowing patterns and lyrical texture, is offset perfectly by Ken’s inspired approach to clawhammer banjo, which explores chord inversions, harmony lines, voice leading, note-for-note playing, and counter-melody. Their performances testify to the grace, beauty, and power of Appalachian music, and their joint CD, Southern Summits: 21 Duets for Fiddle and Banjo, has been widely reviewed as a benchmark oldtime music recording.
