An old Quaker hymn. Played on the HANSEN2 banjo. Made from a salad bowl, some maple from a discarded futon, with bicycle spokes for the tension hooks.

Reminds me of Aaron Copland.  I would like to see the Hansen2 banjo sometime.  It sounds pretty good, especially after reading the description above.

And here's the salad bowl banjo, as it was being cobbled together.
