I'm happy to present my collaboration with not_on_display: this is our version of a neat little tune that was included in The American Songbag (a 1927 folk song collection by Carl Sandburg); the song there was itself derived from a late 19th-century song by William S. Hays. [more inside]
I went to Alaska cruise several times and one day, I sat in the library and looked out the ocean from the window. It was such a thrilling moment and I created this music with my little laptop computer. I tried to describe the massive and spiritual scenery of Alaska and its vanity as well. Its "Gold Mining" starting in 1870, which was mainly all about fantasy and led so many people to tragedy, was expressed in this music.
An old-time tune I recorded a few years ago, solo clawhammer banjo. [more inside]
