Hey, fellow banjer pickers!
Well, I've been sitting here pickin' the banjo a little bit today. I've learned two new songs since I've been here to my hangout site. (Roundpeak banjo is currently giving me a hard time because it has been over 200 days since I've logged on! Sorry, I'm a busy banjo-pickin' gal, working and going to school, too!) Anyway, the two new songs I've learned come from the late Carlie Marion, of Elkin, NC. Never got to know Carlie, but I sure enjoyed his music. I learned "Sugarfoot Rag" and "Sunny Home in Dixie" from a cassette tape that he and Andy Cahan put out in the late 1980s, Going Across the River to Hear My Banjo Ring.
It's a great recording and I highly recommend it to all you banjo players out there. The next tune I am going to learn off it is a great rendition of "Fisher's Hornpipe."
Hope you all are having a nice winter evening!
