Pete Seeger, Paul Cadwell, etc.

Does anyone know when Seeger would have become aware of classic banjo (although I don't believe he ever used that term), and whether this is attributable to him knowing Paul Cadwell or something else? I know in the 1962 version (3rd ed.) of Seeger's…See More

One Of The Boys..1906..Evelyn Bloom

This is a must play tune, ideally suited to the banjo. The composer was the wife of Sol Bloom, a song writer, music publisher and from 1925, a long serving Congressman for New York. The first half is set in 2/4 time until the trio when, with great…See More

The Dixie Rag (1913)..Irene Mary Giblin

This is another well written composition by Giblin, which departs from the usual ragtime formula. In the trio and final part, she's woven in the melodies of Turkey In the Straw and Yankee Doodle to good effect. In the second part, I've changed the…See More
