Western Front
Industrialism:

Today, these old turn-of-the-century, five-string banjos regularly surface at flea markets, antique stores, and estate auctions throughout the Ozarks. They represent a complex and generally overlooked relationship between the mass-marketed products of industrialism and the perpetuation and transformation of folk traditions. Certainly homemade banjos existed and were played in the Ozarks and elsewhere in the Southern Highlands, but without the availability of cheap, relatively good-quality factory-made instruments, it is doubtful that the banjo would have caught on in quite the way it did, or be as thoroughly identified with the region as it is today.
