A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
No visuals, I'm afraid, but beautiful zither-banjo music by the master of the genre, Alfred Cammeyer.
Cheers, Bret. Glad you like it! You are correct in that it is indeed rarely heard, and I can’t fathom why that is still the case. I hope more people explore this freely available music (from this website), and the instruments are not expensive.
Glad to see that you are back in action, especially as the banjo world has suffered more than most during the lockdown and we need as many banjo players as possible to keep the vellums vibrating. Let's hope that someone takes over the organisation of the banjo rallies since the very sad, sudden and unexpected recent death of Dave Wade. I suppose that it will be next year before we can have a get together again so we all have plenty of time to do bit of practicing and learn some new tunes.
Thanks, Richard. David will be long missed, I'm afraid. Irreplaceable in many ways. We never met, but I was very impressed with his kindness and willingness to share his knowledge.
I have my fingers in too many musical pies to stick with one thing only. So when the compass points towards the banjo - zither or otherwise - I like to seize the moment and see what comes of it.
