The musicality of both recent videos (Calliope and Lobster) is high and obvious. Also of interest is what is going on in the margins. Lively banjo music seems to have a soporific effect on non-participants in Scotland and France. In the lower right hand corner of the lobster promenade video frame, not far from Pat we see a little dog move a little bit at first and then go entirely inanimate.  In the right margin  of the Calliope performance, behind and to the right of the cello-banjo we see a human being in similar repose, doing an impersonation of furniture. I'll post this to both threads.

Wow! This is a great performance, a wonderful tune and a banjo magnifique!


Mr. Mackillop, you've got your work cut out for you. I recommend large quantities of finger push-ups followed by a good soak in single-malt whiskey. As a matter of fact, single-malt may not be up to the task...I may have to smuggle in some white lightnin' for your poor fingertips.

Hi Jody  and all !

The dog on the video is our favorite afficionado, it is TIKA,  a brave french bulldog who like banjo music.

In marge, is also  "Bubble" our red fish in a glass bowl who is making round very fast when we are playing cakewalk!........

It is well, Eric, that your first banjo playing is so good, because Pat's marvelous second banjo playing nearly steals the show.

Eric and Pat - love the videos!  Thanks so much for sharing.


Rob - It's not a video, but French Marc did post this mp3 of Pat playing the 2d on Whistling Rufus:
