JOHN BALCH  'Carry On John'

JOHN BALCH 'Carry On John'

  • $13.50


Balch is an excellent old-time banjo picker whose work here is proficient and, for the most part, quite effective. All but one of the 15 tunes here are his own originals—they range from moody “new age” pieces like CAPSHAW and WALTER HILL to very nice melodic “parlor” type tunes like RIVERHOUSE, TOO MUCH MUSIC and SONG FOR SHEILA. Accompanied by Jim Wood (fiddle, viola, bouzuki, guitar, bass and mandocello), his style is based on clawhammer picking, but includes more intricate melodic nuances as well.
