Irish Picking and Bowing

Here is the “Violanjo Quartett”. For this medley he overdubbed 4 tracks (2 Violins and 2 Banjos).

Do you have time for 9 minutes? Here is a Medley of 5 traditional tunes: Cooleys Reel, Anthony Payne of Stratton, Silver Spear, Cuckous Nest and Harvest Home. Me on banjo 1 and on banjo 2, Myself on fiddle 1 and on fiddle 2. I wanted to imitate some Bodhran sounds so I used a droning triplet picking pattern in the backup banjo. Picked on the HUBER BANJO.
