Here is Existential Banjo, Episode 3:  "MTA" featuring Tony Trischka, arguably one of the greatest banjoists the world has ever known. One of his important early influences was the Kingston Trio and their version of the MTA.   But in his storied career, it has never been recorded until now.  An important distinction here is that this was recorded at Tony's home in New Jersey.   In order for me to get to his house, I had to pass by the storied George Washington bridge.   Just today in the news it was revealed that the large governor of NJ, did in fact know about the "traffic slowdown" on the bridge.   In honor of truth, justice and the American way, the Existential Banjo proudly introduces its interstate traffic introduction to the show---one of a cascading array of doorways to the Existential Banjo.  PLEASE SHARE THIS.   PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO THE YOUTUBE CHANNEL SO YOU WON'T MISS A SINGLE EPISODE.
