For enthusiasts of early banjo
From a transcription I made of the 1920 recording played by the Fred Van Eps Quartet. Piano arrangement by my wife and banjo by Alfred Weaver.
Hi to John, Tim and all on Minstrel NING,
I have not been over from Classic-Banjo.ning to visit your site for a while so I hope that you don’t mind popping in with a video?
It is a “sort of” minstrel era, but bought up to date by a few years.
George Gershin wrote “Swanee” in 1919 and it was a tongue in cheek composition based on the Stephen Foster’s 1851 “Old Folks at Home” (also known as Swanee River).
I hope that you enjoy it, as I enjoyed playing it.
... if not get, John to NUKE it.
I enjoyed that! Believe it or not, when I was 12, I asked for, and got an Al Jolson record for Christmas!
