The brash, popular student took to the stage in a jumpsuit, cowboy hat and banjo. Presumably the school clown, he said a few words before playing the banjo. Between the lines, the audience laughed, and it seems that everyone considers his “talent” a joke. He even drank some from the can to give the impression that he was also chewing tobacco.
But as soon as he started playing his banjo, he stunned the entire audience! At the school talent show, Joel, the village banjo player, really showed off his talent and impressed his peers with a wonderful performance! Playing “Cripple Creek” and “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” he really showed off his picking skills and showed a talent that probably none of his friends knew about.
You can tell from the audience’s reaction how impressed they were with his hidden talent. He clearly captivated the audience, who applauded and applauded loudly at the end of his speech. Who knows if he won, but he definitely did his best!
