It’s Uncle Neddy’s mix tape time, so let’s all gather ’round the campfire and listen to what the man has in store for us this week…
Ah, that sweet gap between the Solstice and the Fourth, perfect for some good ol’ fashioned roots music. Today’s concentration: the banjo. At first I didn’t think I’d be able to scrape together enough tunes, but it didn’t take long before I was having trouble paring it down to my self-imposed six. While happy with what we’re left with, I’m not sure if it will have the intended effect, but it should be an interesting tutorial in the multiplicities of the ole banjo. One super caveat is that I’ve completely ignored Mr. Fleck, who now has a reservation for his own mix somewhere in the not-too-distant future.
