Product Notes

Like a cold wind coming down from the north, this Canadian banjo player will blow you away and give you chills!Terry Joe's debut CD 'MOUNTAIN CALLING' is a must have for any fan of the clawhammer banjo picking style.When Doc Watson heard him play he exclaimed 'Son,that's bluegrass tempo.I never heard anyone frail so fast in all my life!' An independantly released CD that stands up to par with most label releases,it is a joy to listen to with a diverse collection of originals and traditional songs.Terry Joe 'banjo' is joined by a dymanic group of incredible acoustic musicians that add a whole spectrum of colour to his already colourful banjo playing. Whether scaled down instrumentals of just the banjo & bass (Ode To Banjo), banjo & fiddle (the Mountain Minor Medley) or banjo & tablas (Hummus, Sweet Hummus) or the full band ripping away (Blackberry Blossom), his frantic frailing will get your toes tapping if not your whole foot stomping along to the driving beat!His originals range from the traditional sounding (Green Valley, Mountain Calling, Rainbow in Virginia)to a rocking beat (I Am Alive!, I Love Goin' Down On You) & on to the sweet (My Father's Song, Life Goes On),.Let's not forget the laugh out loud humorous (Roadkill) and a talkin blues that could have been penned by Woody Guthrie himself (Talkin' Folksinger).The double banjos on the John Hartfordish sounding 'Been All Around This World' makes it all worthwhile. An exciting array of original & traditional songs,different styles from mountain to folk to bluegrass to rock with the banjo holding it all together.Lots of fun!
