Lawes became a good friend of Fred Van Eps who produced his own arrangement of the piece. Fred's motto was "why play one note when you can play ten"!

A tricky arrangement, very nicely played and sounding ever so musical. Well done Ian. Can't wait for the next one.

Hi Ian, that was a brilliant performance and it's good to see that you've shown your banjo the light of day after your recent health issues...Steve..

A delight! I don't recall hearing FVE play this one...probably just heard it too far back to remember it. Well done!!
