ALLEN HART 'Old Time Banjo' VOY-368-CD

  • $13.50


We didn’t know much about Mr Hart, except that he took part in another record that we carried some time back (HART & BLECH, “Build Me A Boat, VOY-354, $ 13.50), but he has certainly produced a fine recording here, with a variety of very nicely played old-time banjo tunes. Judging from his playing—as well as the excellent notes—Hart has obviously learned well from some of the great banjo pickers of bygone years: Dock Boggs, Wade Ward, Virgil Anderson, Clarence Ashley and Sidna Myers among others. Hart provides tunings (an important bonus for banjo enthusiasts) and has put down some outstanding versions of CHILLY WINGS, TILDEN, ALTAMONT, GOODBYE OLD BOOZE, DAVENPORT, COAL CREEK MARCH and HOLLY DING, etc. Recommended.
