Ballad in Eb for Banjo – Parke Hunter, 1876-1912

A truly unique and beautiful piece by an nearly forgotten American master.  Mel Bay Publishing has helped to keep some of these old tunes alive and in circulation.  This one comes from THE MEL BAY BANJO METHOD (5 STRING): Volume 1 The book I started with back in the 1970s.

Sit back in the office chair, kick your feet up (if the boss isn’t watching, forget your troubles for a few minutes, and enjoy this beautiful air on a G-stringed instrument played by Rob MacKillup.
