• An enthusiastic crowd of over 30 Carlisle residents attended a fundraiser on October 21 to support The Banjo Project, a fulllength television documentary, written and produced by fi ve-time Emmy Awardwinning fi lmmaker and Concord resident Marc Fields. Fields presented sections of the fi lm, which is a musical odyssey through 300 years of American history and culture, featuring contemporary banjo masters such as Pete Seeger, Earl Scruggs and Taj Mahal in interviews and performances, combined with rare archival footage, stills, recordings and first-hand narratives. Banjo virtuoso Tony Trischka topped off the night with stories of the transformation of the banjo and tales of the great pickers. April Stone hosted the event at the home of D’Anne Bodman and Harvey Nosowitz. For more information, visit
