Bluegrass Monday #6
Some hardcore bluegrass for you today courtesy of Arizona Smoke Review and their Best of Bluegrass which I got at a Library CD sale
Brothers Pete and Bill Zorn are joined by Phil Beer and Paul Downes. No vocals just relentless banjos,fiddles and mandolins,
For your listening pleasure here is the Duelling Banjos suite - a suite as opposed to a medley as it includes a bit of Bach.
Of course thanks to the film Deliverance it is impossible to think of Duelling Banjos without thinking of in-breeding and mutilation
There is 55 minutes of music on the Arizona Smoke Review including Foggy Mountain Breakdown,Auld Lang Syne, The Orange Blossom Special , a Sailor's Hornpipe and the Battle of New Orleans.
Not sure if it's bluegrass but here is Johnny Horton with the definitive version of The Battle of New Orleans
