Medley of tunes in D

Recording Date:

Medley of Rock the Cradle Joe, West Fork Girls, something that I learned from a contra dance record but can't remember the name, and my version of Ragtime Annie. I can still picture in my mind the first time I heard and saw West Fork Girls being played. It was at a party in Seattle in 1977, and there were three banjo players besides me. I had no idea of the tune, but just watched their left hands all going dum-dum-dum, dum-dum-dum down the neck in the B part. I was impressed, but didn't learn the tune (or even the name) until I got the "Summer Oaks & Porch" album by the Fuzzy Mountain String Band a few years later.

Banjo Style: 
GoldTone WL-250 banjo
