Flett From Flotta on the banjo for Banjo Bobcat who`s mother was a Flett From Flotta. Yes, there was a real man called Flett and he was from a place called Flotta. I hope he likes it.

This is beautiful and has actually put a little tear in my eye.  I have to learn this one.  Would you let me learn it and even, one day make a You Tube video?  I do not want to steal it so I will reference it.  It is just so good!

Thanks both of you. Kester, I`d love you to do it. I bet you do a great job. I can`t wait to see it on You Tube.

Sandra, I think that this is lovely.  I am trying to arrange some English traditional tunes for clawhammer banjo and many of them wotk well.  I am struggling with jigs in 6/8 - have you tried any?

Thanks john and Don,  John, I`ve never had much luck with Jigs. The only people I get to play with are in a mixed band. When we play jigs, I just do the melody and pretend that its a tenor banjo. The last one I can remember doing  is Garsters Dream. I don`t know if you know it. It was great fun. One day I might get another tenor banjo.

Hi Sandra I was researching Flett from Flotta this afternoon for a project I'm doing for Mel Bay and was surprised to see the Banjo Hangout come up in my search. You do a good job on the tune, too. You can hear my version with my band, if you are interested, here. It is part of a set of tunes we play at most of our ceilidhs.

Iain, I love it. I wish I had known about it when I was trying to learn it. At least then I would have known what it was meant to sound like. I watched a thing on the telly last night about 911 and it showed somebodys funeral and a pipe band was playing Flett. It was beautiful, very sad and moving.
