The Bell Chimes

A pretty little tune - this is the Herbert J Ellis version (but with the Dobson intro).  Hope you like this one, Ian (our resident Bell Ringer)

Edit by Ian:

I have added a Music player for Carrie's recording.

Very nice indeed Carrie, and a nice sounding banjo too. You sound better than my Handbell Ringing Team…

Classic Banjo Radio Down

Wouldn't you know it. After announcing the new website to all of you, the computer that I am using to stream the music decided to die. Period. I am porting over the radio station to another computer and should be up and running by the end of the day.

As they say in the radio biz, "Stay Tuned!"

Fred Martin

What can you all tell me about Fred Martin?  I've read that he was a prominent banjoist and teacher in Boston, MA in the 1890s.  I've also read that he had an endorsement deal with Fairbanks who made him his own line of banjos less ornate (and more…See More

"Yes, I certainly missed that one somehow!  I must have misread it early on, memorized that way, and my ear never picked up on it all the times I went back to Patricia & Eric Stefanelli's amazing version.  Thanks Marc and Ian!"
