It’s been drizzling all morning here in the southwest corner of Toronto. Further north, periods of freezing rain have been causing grief for motorists. It seems like the kind of day for a weird, melancholy minor key banjo tune, doesn’t it?
This tune is called 41st Avenue, written by Mark Jones. I learned it at Midwest Banjo Camp from Cathy Barton Para, in a workshop about the music of Grandpa Jones, Ramona Jones and the Jones family.
