WATCH: The Dead Broke Barons pen song ‘Curly Williams’ about the “saddest pirate man has seen.”
We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Seth Pedigo of the Dead Broke Barons at Lost River Cave to discuss his banjo. In the video below, Seth discusses the history of the banjo, how he came across his, and the symbolism behind his hand drawn illustrations on the instrument. This piece was produced by WKU PBS crew member Neil Purcell.
We were honored to have reporter Hannah McCarthy and photographer Weston Kenney of Western Kentucky University's Talisman visiting us behind the scenes of our very first live event. You can view their work by visiting wkutalisman.com.
