One of the many popular hit songs, written by Irishman Gilgert O'Sullivan from the early 70's. In all his songs, he had a gifted way with words,, and the true story behind this tune's, worth listening to. This was a lovely tune to work on, and hope you enjoy my banjo version. Thaks f'tunin' in .... Don. Key Bb, tuning CGBD.

Octajo ~ O'Keiffe's Slide

Sat, 11 Oct 2014 14:25:00 CST

I'm thrilled to have been asked to do the rollout of an innovative instrument that opens a new world of mando-banjo potential. The Octajo is a double-course tenor banjo tuned an octave (or lower) below mandolin and violin. With a 12” banjo rim with bronze tone ring and an octave mandolin neck the Octajo can be strung with either metal or nylon strings. The one on this recording is set up with nylon. Hope you enjoy.

The World is Waiting for the Sunrise

Wed, 2 Jan 2008 07:58:00 CST

Steve Caddick is playing this tune. This was recorded at the Early Spring Banjo Fling in 2003 in Mansfield, MA where I was the Headliner. This is my solo tenor banjo rendition of this old tune. It includes the verse which is seldom heard. A bit of trivia for you Boomers, this song was written by June Lockhart's father, Eugene, she played the mom on the 1950's TV show Lassie. In looking at the song style choices, there needs to be one for 4-string banjos!

Minuet , Notebook for Anna Magdalena

Sat, 4 Jun 2011 23:35:00 CST

This is from the “Notebook for Anna Magdalena." Apparently there is some controversy over the actual authorship of this minuet. Christian Petzold is believed to have composed two of the pieces from the 1725 Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach: the familiar "Minuet in G major" (BWV Anh.II 114) and its partner piece, "Minuet in G minor" (BWV Anh.II 115). These were traditionally believed to have been composed by J.S. Bach but scholarship, particularly on the part of Hans-Joachim Schulze, has recently pointed to Petzold. The Minuet in G Major is catalogued as a BWV Anh. piece because to this day, nobody knows if Christian Petzold or J.S. Bach was the one who composed it. Petzold acted as an agent of J.S. Bach keyboard Partitas. Soprano 4 string banjo & Baritone 4-string banjo.

The Fern Dale Memorial Banjo Band -- on this occasion, eight plectrums and a tenor, plus trombone, bass, drums and two washboards -- at the Mouldy Figs' 30th anniversary bash in suburban Minneapolis, Minn., on Feb. 9, 2003.

Lee." There's a picture of the band in my album here.
