This piece was recorded with my Deering Sierra. I bought that banjo from Mr. Lou Boeyens. In his younger days he was ,besides a great musician, a great entertainer. Anyway, once I got used to it, it's a great banjo.

Bonnie Prince Charlie is the unofficial name for Charles Edward Stuart. He tempted for the British crown, but lost the crucial battle. For the rest of his live he lived in exile in France en Italy. So this is probably a Scottish tune. Adam Hurt made a very nice arrangement.

These tunes are considered to be the very first beginning of melodic banjo. Bill Keith must be nearly eighty by now. Nevertheless we, in Europe, meet him every year at the yearly bluegrassevent in Voorthuizen Holland. As for us he's a living legend. His presence there really means a lot.

We know this tune from Country Gazette. I think of myself as a banjoplayer but this time I put a great effort in a guitarbreak. I found a tab of Clarence White on the internet. It sure was a hell of a job.

I found this tune on the homepage of another Belgian banjoplayer teddy111. He posted it from an old LP-record. The author , Steve Waring is still performing in France.

The main melody comes from a manual from Tony Trischka from the year 1978. The second part is a minor variation that was found on the mandolincafe website.

This is my voice on the BHO. I guess that's a victory on myself. I was struck by this song in a rendition from 16 hp (Secrets from the south) . That is more than 10 years ago.

In order to bring this one out on the BHO I did ask Chris Coole for his authorization. He did gave me his permission. I hope this rendition has it's merits. No doubt that in Chris Coole's original playing there is more feeling. I did the best I could. Anyway I feel grateful for the permission.
