The Impostor, as well as other scintilating topics including; how he first fell in love with the banjo at age five. Fleck says: "When I was 15, my grandfather turned up with a banjo, right before I started high school, and said, here you go. You think you could do anything with this? And then it was in my hands and then there was nothing I could do but play it every second."
