Clifford Essex wood-hoop special for sale (UK)

Hello - I'm looking to sell my CE Woodhoop Special that has been nicely refurbished and set-up by Alec Anness (Fen-based luthier and furniture restorer) and has its original leather case - work included new head, repair of 2 tiny neck holes, polish, repaint of wood, new ebony perchpole wedges etc..  It now has no issues!  I'm looking for around £850.  The only reason I'm selling it is I prefer playing my other CE Special with the skinny neck profile.   I'll post some photos on my page.…See More

Carrie's Gone to Kansas City (Blind Boone)

"I see!   So maybe the piano roll of Blind Boone would sound not nearly so dreadful if the operator left the controls alone. Thanks to both of you."

"I think that in musical terms he is fiddling about making a bugger of the playback!  Even at 75% using Youtube controls it sounds dreadful.  Carrie thank you for playing correctly...great stuff :-) Player piano controls:"

Carrie's Gone to Kansas City (Blind Boone)

"Blind Boone was a banjo player as well as a pianist and composer. Here's a screen capture from a Youtube feature on Blind Boone. The photo is from an archive in Columbia Missouri. And sure enough there's the banjo, not far from the piano."

Ragging the Scale - Van Eps Banjo Orchestra

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZYaoR-h6F8

A different version of Ragging the Scale than the one in the Original Recordings library marked as Van Eps Banjo Orchestra.  I wonder who the other musicians were - sounds like plectrum or tenor banjo.

Clarke Buehling interview

Just thought I'd share this on a youtube site 'Old Time Central'.  He plays: Lone Star Quickstep, Hot Foot Ike cakewalk and a twisty tune I'm not familiar with, The Hartford Jig.

Hello Carrie, Just watched your video, playing "The Jubillee".
Your playing sounds very tasteful on my old Stewart Banjeurine,
I recently sold it to Kevin @ Findajo !

Hi Carrie,

I have really enjoyed playing stroke style from the Briggs' book on my tackhead but I'm finding the classic style much more satisfying, even at this very early stage. I'm taking it very slowly, working from 'Ellis's Thorough School' and as I'm retired, I have plenty of time to practice. I really do appreciate your offer of help.

If you, or any fellow players live near me and might fancy meeting up occasionally, please message me. I live near Eastbourne, East Sussex. I also travel to Oxfordshire every couple of weeks for a camping weekend so I could make a brief detour.

Best wishes, Ian.

Hi Carrie.

I started a msg to you, but my finger hit a button somewhere...away it went. You mentioned you liked City Point Jig. If you would like a copy I can send it or post it on this site somewhere. It's in "A" notation. Clarke

Thanks for the kind words, Carrie! I'm really enjoying getting to know this music so far!
