My contradance band, Banjovi, gathered on the back porch to jam a bit during our shut-in days. Contradances in which 30 people all grasping each other's hands and other body parts are not conducive to stopping virus spread, so we have had no gigs for a while. The Letter is not a dance tune. We worked it up ages ago, but haven't played it in almost as many ages. Consequently, there are a few glitches, especially by the banjo picker, but that just shows that this is real music.

53 years old, so officially counts as old time in my book. I like when people take non-traditional banjo music and adapt. I like what you guys did with this, sounds great. Find an upright bass to add into the mix and you'll put The Box Tops to shame.

Super, as usual. (I've stolen your version of "Nowhere Man.)

DC5 Thanks! We do like a bass, but Cathie can't play the guitar and the bass all at once! I'm glad that someone else want to do non-trad on clawhammer.

@Paul R. Thanks! I'm happy to know you stole Nowhere Man (Can't complain since I stole it from the Beatles Movie!). I hope you take it and run with it. I hope to hear it sometime.

I was thinking of putting it into our set list for the Homegrown Live Festival (2 May) here, but it was cancelled. We have two banjos, clawhammer and Bluegrass.
