Description

Fresh off a successful, sold-out, Off-Broadway run, this show will inspire you, make you laugh and will tug at your heartstrings. Faced with a grim medical diagnosis and given little chance to survive, a former public company CEO decides to follow his lifetime passion for banjos. His true story of the healing power of the arts will challenge you to consider those passions you haven't pursued. Told with humour and music, this show has sold out Fringe runs across North America.
