Ragging the Scale - Van Eps Banjo Orchestra

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZYaoR-h6F8

A different version of Ragging the Scale than the one in the Original Recordings library marked as Van Eps Banjo Orchestra.  I wonder who the other musicians were - sounds like plectrum or tenor banjo.

Ole' South (1909)..A Plantation Dance..Henry Lodge.

This is one of HL's lesser known works, anyone who likes Sunflower Dance should like this as it's similar in structure and the use of dotted notes. I jokingly describe it as Sunflower Dance on steroids! Like many composers, he's incorporated some…See More
