This week we are repeating a 2009 program with Deborah Boykin interviewing Birmingham musician Herb Trotman, who talks about banjo playing and tells stories from three decades of performing old time and bluegrass music in Alabama.

 Herb Trotman becomes the 17th recipient of the Alabama Folk Heritage Award during the, biennial, Alabama State Council on the Arts' Celebration of the Arts event at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival on May 20th, 2015. 

This award was established to recognize master folk artists who have made outstanding contributions to their particular artistic tradition. The award is intended to honor long-term achievement within art forms that are rooted in the traditional or ethnic culture of Alabama.
