New York March

One more 1865 banjo tune for the city songs challenge trifecta! This is another Frank B. Converse composition. Fretless banjo and tambourine, a bit of reverb for extra stateliness.

A la Habana

An ode to Havana in a mongrelized "guagancó" rhythm. It's badly sung in Spanish, and awkwardly played using congas, bongos and a batá. I've included my original lyrics in Spanish and an English translation. [more inside]

Boston Jig

Getting in just under the wire for the May/June city song challenge, this is a short little banjo tune from Buckley's New Banjo Method of 1860. Fretless minstrel banjo, parlor guitar, bones and tambourine.
