A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
Can members here provide, or direct me to, external source references for the earliest use of the term 'Classic banjo'? I've looked at the Grimshaw, Van Eps, Parker Hunter and Morley et al, publications in the tutor book and song/journal section of the website but these do not appear to include contemporary use of the term. Is it a relatively modern, retrospective descriptive term? If so when does this accepted usage date from? Thank you.
My pal Kevin likes to point out that if they'd played a Joe Morley tune Deliverance would have probably been a much nicer movie.
Now I'm visualising a Joe Morley and concertina sequential duet down the length of a pier at a nice English seaside town. Skegness? Set on the North Sea coast in November would eliminate any possibility of what my nan used to call 'hanky panky' unwanted or otherwise. I should imagine your mate Kevin would advise pretty extensive recasting?
