Nice singing! This tune sounds mournful and your banjo makes a great accompaniment.

Very nicely done.  Some folks might think New England whaling songs and banjo are strange bedfellows, but lots of banjos went to sea in the last century.  If they still aren't convinced, they should give this wonderful rendition a listen.  Perfect interplay between voice and instrument.

Celeste, Happy New Year (a little late) This song is really beautiful!  You did a very nice job.  I wish you lived closer..  Joe and I are getting together with some old clifftop friends this afternoon.  Ann Whitley for sure and we hope to see Albert and Billy too.      Thanks for posting your song!

Very nicely done, I believe I've heard that tune used as background music in The Civil War, I was a pleasure to both learn it's title and here it done on the 5.
