Gottschalk's The Banjo on YouTube
Here is a video I posted on YouTube in which I play my arrangement of Louis Moreau Gottschalk's "The Banjo" (1854) on the gourd banjo.
Les Barricade Mystérieuses on YouTube
People have asked about my performance of Couperin's "Les Barricades Mystérieuses" from my first Flying Fish record, and I will send a pdf copy of the music to anyone who asks--palouserivermusic@gmail.com. I don't know if I'll record it again, but I know the old Flying Fish stuff will never be re-released. So maybe I will; I play it at most of my performances because I always have loved that piece and it's fun to do. Anyhow, my friend Thomas Arthur recorded a video of me playing it on the fretless gourd banjo, and I posted it on YouTube.
