A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
One of the minory, jiggery, 'characterisitic' pieces from the dawn of the published banjo repertoire, of which there are many. This is interesting for being Dallas' first published banjo solo.
It is also interesting for being composed by Alf Wood, who was part of the Pierrot Troupe organised by Will Pepper; Wood also played with the Moore and Burgess Minstrels at St. James' Hall. He was reputed to be the equal of Joe Morley as regards his playing abilities. He spent some time in the U.S.A. in the 1890s.
