A 6-part Bulgarian dance tune in 4/4. Banjo is tuned aEADE. This works for contra dancing if you rearrange the parts a bit.

Bourree in 3/8. For the track that has chords, I put a cheap wooden violin mute on my banjo bridge. Instant banjola!

The version from Tom, Brad & Alice's Holly Ding CD, with some, er, experimental percussion. Banjo is tuned f#EAEF#, I think.

An experiment with a Gold Tone 5-string cello banjo that was strung with regular nylon strings instead of the lower-pitched ones. The fuzziness is partly from setting the recording levels wrong and partly from the banjo--I might have set it up wrong or it didn't like the non-factory strings. Tuned gDGCD. There are also some cicadas singing along.
