Queen of the Burlesque

"I don't think I was saying that the dance called the Schottische doesn't exist - they were once very popular, I have played them, the literature is full of it, and not a few PhD theses on the subject are available online, any time you are…"

Queen of the Burlesque

"Another gem of a classic banjo classic! Well done! Just one point: I don’t think this is a Schottische as such. The Schottische does exist as a dance in many countries, though from my researches I could not find that they had much in common…"

Shuffle Along (Joe Morley)

"Bravissimo!  I loved it!  As smooth as pouring cream from a jug.  Some nice personal touches there to drag it into the 21st century.  Backup from the Titanic String Band School of Morley Banjo.  The next piece can't…"

"This is very sad news indeed.  In Dave's passing we have lost  someone who was always selflessly helpful with a big, welcoming smile and one of our most devoted banjoists.  We must be grateful that he managed to put so much of…"

TONY BRYAN replied to Joel Hooks's discussion Turner's Banjo Monthly No. 153
"The reported speech is very much of the age of Arthur Conan Doyle - Holmes and Watson are all over it.  It's the popular reporting style of the day.  Dickens is said to have had a good ear for the spoken word, but he had been dead for…"

PENSACOLA POLKA MARCH

"I always assumed that "Fun On The Wabash" alluded to the river. In 19th C parlance, it is common to read military accounts of battles that describe them as "fun". Example: "Tecumseh and his gang arrived and some fun was…"

PENSACOLA POLKA MARCH

"Fortunately, the Player Biographies section has all the bases covered: it starts with Morton Parke Hunter and ends with William Parke Hunter.  W. M. Brewer in his BMG articles always refers to William Parke Hunter.  I agree that it's…"

PENSACOLA POLKA MARCH

"Ian, if you remember I was in correspondence with you about the real name of Parke Hunter some years ago. My curiosity had been aroused because I kept coming across banjo compositions attributed to M.P.Hunter, some (the 'Boston Ideals' for…"
