http://www.banjocrazy.com/This is a Breton tune I've played on cittern since I first heard it on a Gerald Trimble album in the 80s. (Will someone please tell its name? Here's my rendition of the tune played clawhammer style on a Gold Tone Bob Carlin BC-350+ banjo.The Gold Tone Banjo Company signaled its intent to continue fine-tuning and expanding its line of openback banjos, when it began collaborating with distinguished clawhammer maestro Bob Carlin. For over 30 years Carlin has spread the artistry of clawhammer banjo through his worldwide performances, his innumerable recording projects and his banjo teaching materials, scholarly writings, lectures and workshops.Gold Tone offers three Bob Carlin signature model banjos: the BC-350, the BC-350+ and the BC-120. All three use the same 12" pot and brass tone ring.Here's my recent interview with Bob Carlin on the evolution of these signature models.http://www.banjocrazy.com/articles/arcarlinopen.shtmlIn my search for a deeper sound, wider fingerboard and a scoop, I recently bought myself a BC-350+. Im quite pleased with its sound and playability. Mine is set up with a skin head.Visit my website http://www.banjocrazy.com/ where I sell Gold Tone instruments. Also featured on the site are exclusive articles and interviews with players such as Bob Carlin, Adam Hurt, Marcy Marxer, Cathy Fink, Cathy Moore, Gordon Johnston and others.
