I keep hearing that skin-head banjos (and also nylon strings) are weather sensitive.  I haven't noticed this living in a temperate English climate but I wonder if playing outdoors in Autumnal weather…Continue

"Marc, I think "Oakleighesque" is worthy of the final round of a spelling bee.  "

"Gaiety School sounds pretty neat...and very "Oakleighesque" ;-) From Ian's list, I would like to hear Pidoux play "King Cotton March"...a favorite here in the land o' cotton."

"Thanks Richard.  That would make sense. The actual recording that I found is this one entitled 'Gaiety School'.  The composer isn't named unfortunately: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBCVusIn9b0"

"'A Gaiety Girl' was a very successful musical comedy first performed in 1894, there is a full account of it on Wikipedia etc. I assume that the Oakley recording of 'Gaiety Girl' was perhaps a medley of songs from the show. There…"

Devil-May-Care (Olly Oakley)

I have been enjoying listening to the Olly Oakley collection 'Banjo, Burlesque and Bolero'.  On the zitherbanjo.org.uk site there is mention of a tune he composed called 'Devil-May-Care' but, unfortunately, it isn't featured on the album.  I wondered if anyone would be happy to share the audio (or perhaps score).  Also, I am trying to find out information about another Olly Oakley recording: 'Gaiety School' - I wonder if this another of his own compositions but can anyone shed light on this. …See More

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…

Hello Carrie, Just watched your video, playing "The Jubillee".
Your playing sounds very tasteful on my old Stewart Banjeurine,
I recently sold it to Kevin @ Findajo !
Regards-Keith

Hi Carrie,

I have really enjoyed playing stroke style from the Briggs' book on my tackhead but I'm finding the classic style much more satisfying, even at this very early stage. I'm taking it very slowly, working from 'Ellis's Thorough School' and as I'm retired, I have plenty of time to practice. I really do appreciate your offer of help.

If you, or any fellow players live near me and might fancy meeting up occasionally, please message me. I live near Eastbourne, East Sussex. I also travel to Oxfordshire every couple of weeks for a camping weekend so I could make a brief detour.

Best wishes, Ian.
