Banjo Pickin' Battle Hymn of the Republic
I have learned that the Battle Hymn of the Republic is one of my favorite pieces to play. Ever. On anything. I think it all goes back to Chautauqua All-County Performances where we played the song every year with the choir. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever been a part of. I especially love the part: "His truth is marching on" and now that I can play it on the banjo it just seems even sweeter. Simple things in life man, its the simple things.
But speaking of music this band is coming to 7th Street Entry on March 5th. Its the Bowerbirds, another awesome North Carolina band.
