For enthusiasts of early banjo
Old Joe Sweeny's big hit of 1842 and one of the most popular of all Minstrel Stage numbers.
Now THAT'S singin'! Nice job Mark!
Wonderful version of Miss Lucy Long
Is your banjo the same kind that Joe Ayers plays ??
Mark, just wonderful.
Thanks, guys and gals. Scott - same maker as Joe's (Pete Ross) but different model. I have a Mande Banza and Joe has a Didlake. This version is the one published by the Ethiopian Serenaders. It is one of the two earliest version from 1842, but of the two, it seemed closer to an already arranged banjo piece.
Now that we have Paul bringing his CD to Antietam, it seems you (Mark) might feel some obligation to do so. If not, I might have to put one together (for my own listening) from a compilation of your postings on this site.
Whoa, Al.... not so fast!
Ha! Just joking. Well....not really.
Al - I'm ruminating...
Nice rendition. I like it!
Mark, this is your gourd banjo that is a 4 string with no low bass string, is that correct?
