The Cuckoo (or The Coo Coo)

Those of you who saw my last painting exhibition may remember a painting called The Cuckoo and another called She Warbles as She Flies…

The titles of those paintings come from a song often played in the clawhammer banjo style. We think of it as an Appalachian tune because of the seminal recording by Clarence Ashley, but I understand it’s actually an English folk tune.

Here’s Clarence Ashley…

…and here’s another performance of it I really like by Johannes Bonefaas, a fellow known for his banjo-making.

I believe my painting, The Cuckoo is still available. Contact Yumart Gallery.
