Banjo-filled, Low-key, Quirky, Touching, Funny

See it if you like banjos, and don't demand virtuoso playing. Keith's banter is funny (lots of punchline jokes) and moving/inspiring. Crowd-pleaser.

Don't see it if you're not into banjos or want gr skill. He hung out before/after show to talk. Not as polished as many Fringe works, but has homespun charm

Absorbing, Funny, Intelligent, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if you'd enjoy a personal life story, both the ups and downs, with a health scare, collection craziness and a passion fulfilled. Fringetastic!

Don't see it if you do not like one person shows where personal stories are told in a folksy manor including dealing with cancer. You don't like banjo music
