I'm from Huntsville, Alabama where I work as a Software Engineer and part-time banjo instructor. My wife Miiko and I worship at Rivertree Downtown.
I've been playing various instruments since my teen years. I started mandolin and dulcimer at about age 17 and banjo at 20. I love just about all kinds of music. In terms of banjo styles, I play and teach Scruggs, melodic, clawhammer, and 2-finger styles.
I'm also very keen on theology, being a Trail Care Partner with the Land Trust of North Alabama, photography, urban planning, architecture, astronomy, ATM (amateur telescope making), birding, martial arts, and about 30 other distracting hobbies to a (mercifully) lesser extent.
Have never heard of the tune, but the photo is lovely, and could use it’s own tune!
Yep, banjo players know it about as well as fiddle players. Love the minor chords in the tune!
Our mom & grandmother used to take us kids blackberry picking in these really thick blackberry patches. “You kids watch out – it’s full of rattlesnakes”, she would tell us. We always carried a razor blade and a handkerchief just in case we got snake bit!
Grandma’s knew how to keep us kids in line that is for sure!
Hey, I know 2 different versions of that song. ! 😀
That’s great – That’s one more than I know! 🙂
