"RoaringRiver" was composed after a trip by the Bluegill Buddies to Roaring River State Park down in Barry County, Missouri. The raucous appearance of an armadillo in the campground provided the inspiration. I am frailing a Bart Reiter Standard (not the Whyte Laydie) banjo. Silk and steel strings on the old pre-WWI Lakewood parlor guitar help Linda Jo thump out the rhythm. We're tuned down a full step to "F" with "G" fingering.

I've been know to throw my banjo down and grab the .22 at the sight of an armadillo. A cool sounding tune (and fine playing)--just needs a 'bang' at the end!

Funny you should mention armadillos .... I hadn't seen an armadillo in MO. until I took that drive on over your way to play at the New Haven festival... I saw like 3 squooshed armadillos on the road that day .
