Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Okay, here is a funky one from Buckley 1860. My wife is tapping along with something or other. We had to stop midway for station identification.

"Hi, folks, I'm Tim Twiss, and when I'm not layin' down a syncopated minstrel banjo jam, you can bet I'm havin' some Duchess Sweet Peas. They give me the energy to decypher the oddest of banjo tunes, and the strength to execute them on my ol' cremona. So the next time you need a little pick-me-up, remember Duchess Sweet Peas...

Oh man, you are TOO funny. It ended up reminding me of "Pet Milk" on the old Red Skelton Show".

My new favorite video on MinstrelBanjoNing!    lol!

Great playing!  "Funky one" is right!

....do you think it has ANY relation to this other version?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=RbWEdsV6Es8

I made corn bread last year using Martha White brand flour, as highly recommended on oldtime radio, and further pushed at me by some oldtime musician friends.  It wasn't very good.  Too white, too finely ground.  Not funky enough!
