    Banjomusikk

    Aprpops banjo (ref 16 Horsepower )

    For noen år siden (3-5) hørte jeg et band bestående av bare banjospillere. Tror det kansje var en trommeslager med, men det var definitivt ikke noen på bass. Når jeg hørte introduksjonen på radio grøsset jeg og holdt på å slå av, men det gjorde jeg ikke - og for en opplevelese! Det svingte som f... og det var rett og slett storveis! Gåsehud!
    Syntes jeg da, i en periode hvor jeg kun hørte Schubert og Zappa (omtrent) og banjo og trekkspill var ute.

    Kan noen hjelpe meg her - det var et stort ensemble, 6 - 8 (10) mann på banjo av forskjellig størrelse og stemming (vil jeg tro) og en mann på trommer. Det var såpass bra at jeg fortsatt leter......

    hjelp..........

    Banjomusikk

    Siden du har fått et solid kick på 16HP, og er litt gira på banjo, tenkte eg nevne noe eg hørte ganske mye på i den tida eg var veldig inni 16 HP.

    Buell Kazee
    Buell Kazee was a minister who played banjo and sang the ancient songs of his beloved Kentucky mountains during the 1920s. Considered one of the very best folk singers in U.S. history, he was a master of the high, "lonesome" singing style of the Appalachian balladeer. Kazee was born in the foothill town of Burton Fork, KY, and learned most of his songs from his family. He began picking banjo at age five and often played during local gatherings. He prepared for the clergy even as a teen and after high school began studying English, Greek, and Latin at Georgetown College, KY. It was there that he began to understand the significance of his family and friends' traditional songs. Kazee formally studied singing and music in order to transcribe the old songs and make them more contemporary. Following his graduation in 1925, he gave a "folk music" concert at the University of Kentucky. He wore a tie and tails while playing the banjo and piano, sang in his specially trained "formal" voice, and gave lectures about the history of the songs. The show was a great success, so he repeated it several times over the following years.

    In 1927, he was asked to record the songs for Brunswick in New York, and he was signed to the label on the condition that he sing using his high, tight "mountain" voice and forego his formal vocal training. Over the next two years, he recorded over 50 songs backed by New York musicians. Many were religious, but others ranged from traditional to popular ballads, including "Lady Gay," "The Sporting Bachelors," and "The Orphan Girl." His biggest hit was a version of "On Top of Old Smoky" called "Little Mohee," which sold over 15,000 copies. In the early '30s, the recently married Kazee lost interest in pursuing a music career and stopped touring to become the minister of a church in Morehead, KY. For the next 22 years, he only sang publicly at revival meetings. Much later, he began using folk themes to compose formal music, such as a cantata-based on the old Sacred Harp piece "The White Pilgrim." During the folk revival of the early '60s, he made a comeback and was one of the first to appear at the Newport festivals. In addition to preaching and singing, Kazee also wrote three religious books and a book on banjo playing. He died in 1976.

    Dock Boggs
    Dock Boggs was just one of the primeval hillbillies to record during the '20s, forgotten for decades until the folk revival of the '60s revived his career at the twilight of his life. Still, his dozen recordings from 1927 to 1929 are monuments of folk music, comprised of fatalistic hills ballads and blues like "Danville Girl," "Pretty Polly," and "Country Blues." Born near Norton, VA, in 1898, Boggs was the youngest of ten children. (He gained his nickname at an early age, since he was named after the doctor who delivered him.) Boggs began working in the mines at the age of 12. In what remained of his spare time, he began playing banjo, picking the instrument in the style of blues guitar instead of the widespread clawhammer technique.

    Boggs began picking up songs from family members and the radio. He married in 1918 and began subcontracting on a mine until his wife's illness forced him to move back to her home. He worked in the dangerous moonshining business and made a little money playing social dances.

    His big break finally came in 1927, when executives from the Brunswick label arrived in Norton to audition talent. He passed (beating out none other than A.P. Carter), and recorded eight sides in New York City for the label. Though they didn't quite flop, the records sold mostly around Boggs' hometown. He signed a booking agent, and recorded four more sides for W.E. Myer's local Lonesome Ace label. The coming of the Great Depression in late 1929 put a hold on Boggs' recording career, as countless labels dried up. He continued to perform around the region until the early '30s, however, when his wife forced him to give up his music and go back into the mines. Boggs worked until 1954, when mechanical innovations forced him out of a job.

    Almost a decade later, in 1963, folklorist Mike Seeger located Boggs in Norton and convinced him to resume his career. Just weeks after their meeting, Boggs played the American Folk Festival in Asheville, NC. He began recording again, and released his first LP, Legendary Singer & Banjo Player, later that year on Smithsonian/Folkways. Two more LPs followed during the '60s, although, like his original recordings, they too were out of print not long after his death in 1971.

    The revival of interest in early folk music occasioned by a digital reissue of Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music finally brought Boggs' music back to the shelves. In 1997, John Fahey's Revenant label released Complete Early Recordings (1927-1929), and one year later His Folkways Years (1963-196 appeared.

    Ellers så kan det jo være du finner en del interessante ting her:
    http://open.spotify.com/album/6p5Iw3MlrE1PBlHqCEp001

    Det er en label som heter Yazoo som har gitt ut en 7cd boks med slik musikk, men tror ikkje den er på spoty.

    da mener jeg ikke coverlåter, f.eks. banjoensembleversjonen av new yourk, new yourk fra ''Banjo Jazz Festivalen'' linket til tidligere. Helt ærlig - musikken jeg hørte framkallte ingen som helst trekking på smilebåndet eller tendens til overbærende latter....... - noe som forundret meg - dermed hørte jeg etter...og det var skikkelig bra
    Regner med at den dukker opp ved en tilfeldighet i løpet av de neste årene - du vet: 'Tilfeldighetene er våre venner'
