Subject: Christmas Singing Banjos Ringing
From: JedMarum
Date: 08 Dec 08 - 11:57 AM

My BANJOS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH song has been playing on a few broadcast and number of webcasting radio shows. This link goes to a Youtube video of the song.

I didn't make this song available to the whole world, but I aimed it at a few likely targets - one of which was Soundclick - and I was very fortunate with Soundclick, making their top tracks played list. Here are today's rankings:


SOUNDCLICK CHART RATINGS (as of Dec 8, 2008)
    44 in Country (highest position was 44). Total songs: 40,422
    7 in Bluegrass (highest position was 6). Total songs: 2,248

I was listed in the Folk/Bluegrass category. I am not sure how I got listed in the Country list, but I am happy for the change.

I hope you don't mind the "self promotion" of this note. I know I have a few MC friends who'll be interested in this news.

oops, sorry. Those rankings are for the song, BANJOS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH ... and I want to remind you that no reindeer were actually harmed for killed in the making of this song.

sure there's not much to it ... I play the banjo part out of a modal tuning (I think it's a standard G tuning with the B tuned up to C).

I'll post the lyrics ....

Banjos We Have Heard On High
© Jed Marum, 2008

I heard a band of angels sing
Banjos we have heard on high
Banjos heard on high
"And on this day a new born king!"
Banjos we have heard on high
Banjos heard on high

CHO: Holy night, silent night
Lord of Lords and Light of Light
Angels sing, banjos ring
Praise the new born king!

Son of God and son of man
Banjos we have heard on high
Banjos heard on high


In Bethlehem a bright and shining star
Banjos we have heard on high
Banjos heard on high
Bearing gifts came three kings from afar
Banjos we have heard on high
Banjos heard on high

CHO

I'm so glad you did. I missed it last year so this is brand new to me. The video is is very nice also. Not only did I love the baby, I particularly loved the painting of the banjo shining in the sky like the Star of Bethlehem.

Nice one, Jed.

I've inherited a banjo via my stepmother; although I'm known to fondle the leather ferret, your piece could be just the thing to get me started on the banjo.

Happy Christmas.

Cheers, Rowan

Hmmm; I stopped by last evening to say how much I enjoyed it, but my post disappeared somewhere. I got my wife to watch it, particularly since I knew she would love the little dude with the banjo, as did I.

Is the little picker a descendent of yours, Jed?

No. The little banjo picker is a photo I found on the web. Uncredited, unnoted ... so I don't know anything about it, but I loved the pic!

I'm not a singer Jed and only a moderate clawhammer player which I do in a cupboard at home but I'm going to give this a go at our folk club Christmas party. Nice one.
