Paul Roberts: Cello banjos, banjo lute, guitar, and musical composition.
Jessica Peterson: Flute, Native American flutes, the composition of flute parts, and video creation.

Awhile back I began experimenting with a composite banjo sound, by overdubbing two cello banjos tuned an octave apart, and a banjo lute. The banjo lute, also referred to as a banjola or woodtop banjo, I configured by restringing a 10-string cittern to play as a 5-string banjo. I recorded "WInd in My Sails" on my album of original tunes for cello banjo, "Banjos Dreaming." Now, with Jessica Peterson's arrangement of the tune - combined with her lovely artistic videography - the music takes on much greater perspective and meaning, imbued with  an uplifting, festive feeling. This is the 6th music video we're collaborated on: youtube.com/channel/UCz_hIt7Zy...SWzFyY08g

Hope you enjoy,
Paul

Uplifting! I was wondering where you were. You’ve been scampering, sailing, and flying. :)

Janna, your words are music to my soul. "I flew away with the wind on sails to fairy tale..."  I can't think of a better description for what drew me to music in the first place. Thank you, precious friend!
