But this picture is only part of the story. [CONTINUE NAT SOUND/DISSOLVE TO PHOTO OF SWEENEY]
Appomattox native and minstrel performer Joel Sweeney was once credited as the inventor of the banjo, or at least an innovator who added the fifth string, but scholars now say he played a different role, popularizing the banjo, and bringing it to a worldwide audience. [NAT SOUND OF RODDY TALKING ABOUT SWEENEY 30:13]
[IN Q=And he took the banjo]

((RODDY MOORE: AND HE TOOK THE BANJO ALL AROUND THE WORLD. AND THROUGH THE NORTH, THROUGH THE SOUTH, THROUGH THE BRITISH ISLES, INTO EUROPE EVEN. HE WAS THE FIRST BANJO STAR FROM VIRGINIA.

[RUNS= :17]
[OUT Q=was not the inventor of it.]


As a new exhibit at the Blue Ridge Institute of Ferrum College explains, the inventor of it was an African. The banjo's origins lie in the stringed instruments of West Africa. The xalam (halam), for example, already had a fifth drone string before slaves brought their musical traditions to America.

[RUNS= :13]
[OUT Q=becoming a white instrument.]


Among the 33 instruments gathered for the show are reproductions of gourd banjos, the earliest known Virginia banjo... built by a Lynchburg cabinet maker, a home-built banjo made from an aluminum brake drum, and instruments that belonged to two of Virginia's bluegrass greats Ralph Stanley and Don Reno. [NAT SOUND OF RALPH STANLEY AND DON RENO PLAYING TOGETHER]
One wall of the gallery belongs to the mountain banjo... wooden instruments with small hide drums, that Moore and his staff are still documenting.
[SOT 24:22]
[IN Q=Trying to find out]

((RODDY MOORE: TRYING TO FIND OUT WHO WERE THE MAKERS OF THOSE AND THAT'S SOMETHING WE'RE STILL WORKING ON. AND IT'S SOMETHING I WISH IF THERE ARE LISTENERS WHO KNEW ABOUT PEOPLE IN THEIR FAMILIES OR COMMUNITIES THAT HAD MADE THEM, OR THEY HAVE PHOTOGRAPHS OF PEOPLE WITH THE BANJOS, WE'D LOVE TO KNOW ABOUT THEM.))
[RUNS= :15]
[OUT Q=we'd love to know about them.]


From the banjo's African roots, through slavery and the civil war... from polite society to the back porch and the concert stage... the exhibit suggests the banjo has provided the soundtrack for more than 200 years of Virginia history.
These examples will remain on display at the Blue Ridge Institute for ten months before hitting the road for exhibits in Abingdon and Richmond.
