I have been asked to try and accompany an Apallachian dance group on clawhammer banjo. Apparantly they have been listening and dancing to a recording by the Fiddle Puppets and now want to progress to live music. My request is for a site where I can find some tablature for the tune Laughing Boy or for some kind soul to give me some guidance as I have not heard of the tune before. Thanking you in advance.

Brian

Hi there... try here on Amazon. As a clogging teacher and performer, I highly recommend this music.
