"In Ole Alabam" (1900)...Hortensia Weisman.

The Tar-heeler's Dream (1899)..W.J.Rahley...New arrangement.

This has always been one of my favourites and was worth another look. It makes a very good banjo tune and has a great bass solo in the trio. It's tricky to play in parts but is well worth the effort, especially the trio. My new arrangement and midi…See More
