old. time. music. now!
While i listen to a some old old time music, i hadn’t paid much attention to new (or at least contemporary) old time music, and so when i heard the opening track of the Old Time Banjo Festival CD i thought, ungenerously, this is gonna be one of those comps with the best tune first. But then i listened to rest and its all as good, or better. ((if you like banjos))
I will give my Moroccan banjoist friends a copy of this. Who doesn’t like banjos? Even Clayton Bigsby likes banjos.
Out of all these players, Chris Coole lept out. witness his clawhammer style!!
clawhammer/frailing is the picking style which came, along with the banjo itself, from Africa. a bit more on that .
