The Wayne Adams Old Classic Banjo Collection

Many CB players will already be aware of this but this has recently been released on CD.  I know many of these tunes are in the Original Recordings archive and elsewhere but it's good to see this being released. …

Ragging the Scale - Van Eps Banjo Orchestra

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 again...and some playlists

I have been a way for a while - I got distracted trying to learn some AJ Weidt pieces on the tenor banjo - but I now have the itch to start playing the 5-string banjo again.

The Bell Chimes

A pretty little tune - this is the Herbert J Ellis version (but with the Dobson intro).  Hope you like this one, Ian (our resident Bell Ringer)

Edit by Ian:

I have added a Music player for Carrie's recording.

Very nice indeed Carrie, and a nice sounding banjo too. You sound better than my Handbell Ringing Team…
