New Lame Horse gitjo/Florida Banjo

I'm having great fun experimenting with my new Lame Horse gitjo. Every time I get a chance to sit and play--I find myself picking it up again and again and every time I find myself laughing out loud at the voice of this 6 string.

We are very busy finishing up our new CD, Florida Banjo. It is being mastered in NY as I write and the cover art is awesome. For the first time, we are going with four panel eco wallets instead of all the jewel cases. There is room for nice line notes and nice art, but we want to help do our part with not trashing the environment. 

More soon!

Mary, I can't wait for your new CD.  Will you continue to provide a tab book campanion?  Any sneak peak at your tune list?  Well, its that time of year I start reminiscing on the great time I had in your class at the JC Campbell Folk School.  I hope Chip, Tish and Lo don't tell too many stories about me at Clifftop.  I should thank you for introducing me to them at the school.  That acquaintance allowed me to have a great time at their campsite-where I felt very welcome.  Please tell them Hi for me.

Hello Brad,

Nice to hear from you--we'll miss you at Campbell this year. Billy is already signed up and coming back for his 3rd year in a row. :) As you know--I just use the tunes to slip in technique--but I plan to slip in some new tunes again this year--and by popular request--we may do a little singing and playing too. We did that last year and the students had wonderful voices and sounded great. :)

Okay--here is what will most likely be on the new CD--but don't hold me to it because something could get pulled at the last minute after I hear the mastered disk.

Ponce de Leon, Spanish Fandango, Cluck Old Hen, Ragtime Annie, Yearlings in the Canebreak,  Shenandoah Falls, Yellow Rose of Texas, Waterbound, Frankie's Blues, Peach Bottom Creek, Chinquipin, Hail Agin' the Barn Door, Turkey in the Straw, Wind that shakes the barley, Loch Laven Castle.

Although they are all wonderful tunes--what I am the most excited about are the guest musicians (Ellen Sheppard, Kerry Blech, Lo Gordon, Jim Crozier and Bob Cox) and the new arrangements. I'm particularly fond of the banjo/mando/bowed bass arrangements, the cigar box banjo, and our new tune, Ponce de Leon. :)

Best wishes always,

Mary Z. Cox

ps. I'm working on the tab book now-and hope to have it done pretty soon. :)
