December 2016 Banjo Challenge: "Solo Unamerican Clawhammer"

Wednesday, December 7, 2016 @12:00:00 AM


Click for Large Version

Now accepting entries for December's challenge!

We love America, but we'd also like a contest that focuses on tunes written outside of the USA. For this contest, record yourself playing your favorite clawhammer instrumental from a non-American writer!

Additional rules for this challenge (in addition to the standard contest rules): solo clawhammer only. Please include the author's name and nationality in your video.

Also--don't forget to cast your votes for the November Challenge! Voting closes at midnight November 15th Pacific Time.

Hopefully, Cathy Moore will resurface to enter. The contest is perfect for her. I still visit her dormant blog, "BanjoMeetsWorld."

Eric, will you accept a traditional folk tune (author unknown) that is universally known to have been originated in another country? Thanks, -Peter

Sure, Peter!

Another great idea for a challenge, Eric, but I'd prefer to see the name of it say "non-American" or "Solo Clawhammer from Afar" or something like that. Unamerican sounds so unamerican! I truly applaud you for offering us these opportunities to grow, have fun, and share with our banjo buddies.

What a cool idea! Does it need a citation of authentic un-Amercaness? For example the recognised author or similar proof? Like "Peggy-O"?

Part of the rules state "Please include the author's name and nationality in your video." That's all I ask--I'm not going to research every entry!

JanetB--I get your concern. I actually purposely picked the word "Unamerican" because I knew it would be eye-catching. It's funny how words take on meanings, isn't it?

At one time some people considered Pete Seeger un-American.

I would also love to hear from Cathy Moore as she has reinvented the claw hammer style with her unique styles and rhythms.

Hello
It's OK if I am late for the contest. It's just the medley I am playing is in time for Ukrainian Christmas (which is on January 7th.) Please enjoy listening the Medley of Ancient Ukrainian Christmas Carols: youtu.be/c5ny3LyUER8

oops, sorry the above was more old-time fingerstyle than the clawhammer one.

Here is the solo of the Ukrainian Folk song called "A Rowan Tree in a Valley" youtu.be/W7G8YZCyvX8

Enjoy!

Glad the video contests are back, always had fun with these - I'm assuming the deadline will always be the last day of the contest month?

Yes Zischkale, always the last day of the month!
