I wanted to draw everyone’s attention towards Sarah Wood’s 25 Tunes for Old Time Banjo & Singing: Volume 1, 47 Track CD Included available on Etsy.

Sarah Wood is a part of a new generation of traditional banjo pickers and ballad singers from Kentucky.

I purchased her book and cd on a whim after coming across her work by accident.

Her banjo playing is wonderful and her voice is as good as it gets – Don’t believe me? Check out her album One May Morning -

Anyway, the cd that comes with the tab book is worth the price of admission alone. I would even say that its one of the best old-time music albums that I’ve heard. If you’re a fan of Clifton Hicks, Brett Ratliff, George Gibson and company, this is a must have. Bonus, once the cd is over, it starts all over, except that the songs are played slowly.

I’ve spent less time looking at the tab book, but the intro is quite interesting and filled with useful tips.

Thanks for the tip! This is just the kind of playing that makes me sad I have had to sell my banjos. She create that haunting, earth bound, chilling feeling that only raw, good clawhammer can give you!

Nice voice/timing, reminiscent of Jean Ritchie for voice and repertoire but with one of them banjer thangs. banjered

This is really cool. I haven't gotten a tab book in a long time. I might have to remedy that.

I still suggest that everyone who can support Sarah Wood by buying her material, but I noticed that the cd that comes with the tab book has been posted on YouTube :

I picked up her "One May Morning" CD about four years ago, Sarah is indeed a great player and excellent ballad singer, very talented! Wish she'd record some more...
