A new FB 'friend' of mine, who's blown my socks off with this video where he makes playing the Blues quite literally child's play...

Stephen Green - WOW!!

Deliverance - The Band (and the tune too, along with a few others)


I'm not a festival organiser, but if I were, I'd have these guys booked to headline...Yeesh, but they're great!   :0)

Sorry, Lizzie. I don't care how well they play. I would never support a group of people so silly and so shallow that they would name their band 'Deliverance.'

"Sorry, Lizzie. I don't care how well they play. I would never support a group of people so silly and so shallow that they would name their band 'Deliverance.'"


Good job folks didn't think like that about The Beatles or The Rolling Stones I guess. It's just a band name, leeneia and to poopoo their music because of that makes no sense to me, but...you're perfectly entitled to your opinion though.

pete, I'm not a great bluegrass fan either, but when it's played like that, well..gosh, it gets me listening! J. T. Oglesby's another fine example of that, wonderful musician..

Here's a TED Talk by Howard Goldthwaite titled A banjo player overcomes the PR disaster of the movie deliverance

Was the movie Deliverance THAT bad? Is that what leeneia is referring to?

Deliverance is not a bad movie, if you can stomach Burt Reynolds. It features the instrumental now known as "Dueling Banjos", which is an arrangement by Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandell of the bluegrass classic "Feudin' Banjos," composed in 1955 by Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith.

Snopes has an article on the tune and the movie.

I have no idea what leneeia is on about.

That TED talk WAS a PR disaster. - mildly amusing but dreadful playing.

Weissberg actually toured with a band called "Eric Weissberg and Deliverance" including Mandel, back when "Duelin' Banjos" was a hit for him. I saw them open for Doc Watson in the early '70's. He could pick some banjo.
