Old MacDonald Had a Banjo is an educational show live on Facebook every week day at 11:30AM Central Time. The 15 minute shows feature Old Mac teaching about and playing a variety of instruments and songs.

Old MacDonald (Paul Imholte) has taken the shows he would normally be performing at libraries and festivals to his basement during this time of shelter-in-place.
