A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
The world of classical music gets "The Flight of the Bumblebee" by Rimsky Korsakov while classic banjo gets the flight of the Daddy Longlegs by Emile Grimsha...
Another great performance Tony. I love the way that you play those hidden gems that I have never heard before. We have almost 800 scores in the MUSIC LIBRARY and I have probably played only a couple of dozen of them, so there must be plenty more treasures to be revealed!
Thanks for posting...I have two questions though....
1) I notice that you post the videos yet they are played by a gentleman from the East but the credits show they are recorded in Richmond is that Richmond East Yorkshire or Richmond in the east of "down south" , or somewhere much more exotic altogether? :-)
2) Did you fix your iPad/ Youtube player problem?
To a great extent, the pieces are selected because no-one else appears to have posted a recording (some duplication is unavoidable). There is no intention to be obscure, though, and I am constantly afraid that people will be thinking "oh, no, he's not recorded that old chestnut", or words to that effect.
The international banjo superstar, Maestro Tapis, flies into Heathrow from time to time with his lovely piano accompanist, Yasmina, and favours my studio because of its proximity to the airport. There is also a good Turkish restaurant nearby. Clearly, he only has a few moments to spare before departing on the next leg of his concert tour, so he never gets much further north than Uxbridge. He has expressed an interest in going to Harrow sometime, where he believes there is another good Turkish restaurant.
My iPad plays Youtube videos just fine. It's just Marc's entries that don't register, and I have not figured out why. Strange to relate, if I go direct to Youtube there is no problem. Somehow, when he connects his uploads to this site, the Youtube link gets lost - both for iPads and iPhones.
Nice one Maestro -I try to teach this one after Tired Tim and before Black Coquette.
