NEW ! MORE original scores available soon in the MUSIC LIBRARY

My friend Eric from Israel has just visited Lynn and I and has kindly donated, for the site, a small mountain of original published scores for the banjo.  Many of these are not available elsewhere (as far as I can see), so now I intend to scan, clean up and add them to the MUSIC LIBRARY for FREE download!


I have included a list of titles and composers, so if there are any that you would like to have copies of please let me know and I will edit and upload those first! To process the whole pile will take donkey’s ages, so please be patient ;-)

Eric has much more “stuff” that he will make available soon so please keep your eyes open on site.

As I sorted through the pile I even found a copy of a Morley composition that seems to have been signed by Morley himself and a tatty copy of an original, hand written, manuscript by Olly Oakley!    Lucky me and many, many thanks to Eric for all the work you have given me ;-)


Feast your eyes on this lot !!!!

Many have 1st and  2nd banjo and piano parts.

yow!  I hope your scanner is a place where it is comfortable to use. Mine is not. 10 pages is enough to wear me out.

An interesting collection!

Longwood Polka March is only the second piece I've seen by J. Kershaw -  he ran the Shipley BMG club...long forgotten.

Matilda Quickstep this is not an Oakley piece known to me.

What a gift!  So many intriguing titles.  I look forward to seeing these when you get them up.

Yes Dave, I thought that too... this is the one on manuscript that appears to be written by Oakley!

I've got a Kershaw piece, a Sand Dance I think.

Very nice lot of music!

Many of my Morley sheets have a stamped signature...but one has the stamp in purple and then a signature in black ink (they look remarkably similar). I like to think the black one is an autograph...

I only have two MS pieces, both from FVE in the 1930's. One is "Maple Leaf Rag" and the other isn't (IOW, I can't recall the name of the other one).

Interesting Richard - the usual one to emerge is "Craiglands Jig" named after the big hotel in Ilkley.

Yes, it's Kershaw's Sand Dance published by Dallas.

I recently set a Morley number for a 5-Stringer supplement from his manuscript.  It was remarkable how good his handwriting was.  I've seen some pretty terrible MS but this I could play right from the page.

Ian, I don't have the Dances Pantomime by Cammeyer. I would love to have it if you have the time. I have 153 compositions by Cammeyer and don't know how this one slipped by.

Thanks for all the kind comments, I will pass them on to Eric. As I said before, scanning and cleaning up crumbling scores (he got them here in the nick of time!) is an extremely time consuming job but I am trying to prepare, or at least scan, one or two a day. I will upload them in batches and post to let you know.

Hal, it is always surprising what Eric turns up. Kentucky Parade, with piano score, came from Eric and it is one of Morley's finest unplayed pieces! Now I have Danse Pantomime which must have been hiding somewhere!

I have edited and uploaded it and it is now available in the MUSIC LIBRARY for everyone.
