Nola (Banjo Dance)

"What a great performance.  It does suit banjo well.  Although I think you'll find Nola was written for Arndt's wife Nola (nee Locke) as an engagement present, not specifically for Fred van Eps.  It was a huge hit in about…"

"Whew! Thank you, Carrie...I thought my sound card was toast. Yes, something bad wrong with the recording. I couldn't stand to listen to much more than the first piece...which is played improbably fast, IMNSHO. I really enjoyed his "Mozart…"
