I have just released a new album called Lonestar Banjo. It is a compilation of banjo tracks from various recording projects, over the last few years.

I've posted the details about this project at my website and you can see/hear the album here.

Some of these tracks were produced by Paul Mills - some are from live shows - and some are recent demos for upcoming film projects. I hope you'll take a look and listen - and let me know if you have questions or comments.

Thanks!

One more try with a sample from the album and slides at Youtube.

This song is also on the album, but this video is much older ... just fooling around with a banjo and a camera!

Must be selling well, CD-Baby are fresh out and are back ordering (if I have the US idiom correct!). MP3 downloads still available.

I hope you don't mind me refreshing this thread.

LONESTAR BANJO has been among the top albums sold in the Trad Folk category. It has just slipped out of first place to #4 - at this writing. If you go to CDBaby page and scroll to the bottom of the Track List, click the "preview all songs" button to get a sound sample of the entire album.

Again, please forgive the self promotion of this thread - but I know my Mudcat friends and folk/banjo lovers will be interested.

Thanks!

Thanks Dan. Sometimes I think it's a thin line that I walk, when I post news like this.

(fine line) not for this old dude or anyone else I know Jed. Sharing music is what this place is all about. Keep up the great work

I just got back from a road trip where I had the opportunity to listen to Jed Marum's Lonestar Banjo CD.

What a wonderful collection of songs and instrumentals!

Jed happens to be a student/writer of songs on the American Civil war, and Pat Murphy of Meagher's Brigade is the opening track, bookended with Jed's own composition Fighting Tigers Of Ireland about the Louisiana Brigade who fought for the Confederacy, with Sweet Ellen Joyce (about the 20th Massachusetts) about halfway in.
Fine songs with solid instrumentation.

There are a few chestnuts here, but each is well-played and each get a fresh lease on life at Jed's capable hands. Such as On Top Of Old Smokey, My Grandfather's Clock, Wayfaring Stranger, and Lily Of The West.

Scottish trad songs like My Love Is Like A Red, Red, Rose, Broom of The Cowdenknowes, and his own instrumental Sands Of Aberdeen are given exquisitely tasteful treatment (a tasteful banjo-player? How novel!) by Jed and his musical cohort which includes Masson Brown on banjo, guitar and vocals, Pete Dawson on Whistle, Jaime Marum on mandolin and octave mandolin, Paul Mills on guitar and mandolin, Hugh Morrison on the button box,Dennis Pendrith, David Shaw and Russell Alvey on various basses.

Irish tunes get their turn too with the Foggy Dew and Down By The Glenside (or the Bold Fenian Men) being handled well.

Jed's own Banjos We Have Heard On High is a seasonal romp that can brighten any midwinter's day.

A truly fine recording, well produced, recorded, mixed, and most importantly - played and sung.

Do yourself a favor and order one from Jed's website: www.jedmarum.com

Thanks Seamus. I listen the album myself on my long drives and enjoy it very much. I hope that's not too obnoxious to say!

I like the variety of tracks, live and studio, demo and spit polished, songs and instrumentals. I'm already planning another banjo project!

I appreciate your thoughful and kind words!

Also thanks to whoever fixed the link to the album at CDBaby.
