For enthusiasts of early banjo
One of the "foreign" airs from James Aird's "Selection of Scottish, English, Irish, and Foreign Airs", published 1782.
Maybe this is sacreligious but I appreciate it when we explore and try a tune that very well could've been floating around in the head of a period banjoist but not necessarily in the era's banjo tutorials.
Good find, Paul.
Thanks Al. Mark Weems turned me on to it a few years ago. The book is a gem.
I sounds awfully familiar. Seems like I must have it somewhere. Is it online? Downloadable?
It's in this book https://archive.org/details/selectionofscov100ingl
Mark's rendition is great. http://minstrelbanjo.ning.com/video/old-plantation-girls
Thanks, Paul. I don't recognize that as one I have but as soon as I return from taking my dad to dialysis, I'll begin using the snip tool to create a book and get it printed and bound.
