I could listen to Cathy Barton and Dave Para sing Down the River I go Uncle Joe all day. I like the tune so much I made a painting after it.
That painting is on display at Yumart starting this afternoon as part of my exhibition of new paintings, Ways of the World.
I met Cathy and Dave last year at the Midwest Banjo Camp and learned to play some great tunes from Cathy, who is one of my favourite clawhammer players. If you ever have a chance to see these two perform live, don’t miss it. They’re fantastic players and really nice people too.
