I was making some backing tracks for future banjo-centric live gigs. This is them with the banjo and lead vocal unmuted.

Somehow it seems that Russians would appreciate this ballad. It's such a tender way to speak of the aging dancer and his wondrous life. I read a picture book to my first graders about him, but for some reason I've never sung this. I think I'll play your version for them next time I get it out.

Thanks, Janet

I thought so so, which is why I'm working it up to play in this one place where most of the folks who come in know enough English to understand the story. I'm gratified to think that some youngsters might encounter this classic tune and an American folk instrument at the same time. Exposing kids to stuff like this is truly casting bread upon the waters. Who knows what might take root an blossom in even one young mind?

Very nicely done, Robert, a fine performance and production. I remember when this song was first released in 1968, I was in high school, just beginning to learn to pick banjo.

Nice mix and well played. One of my favorites. Thanks for this.
