In Music on August 9, 2013 at 7:32 pm

Frank Converse wrote the most advanced music for the banjo in the 19th century. Here are two of his pieces from his Analytical Banjo Method of 1887, The Dell Schottische, and Boquet Mazurka.

The banjo is from circa 1900, by Parslow, with nylon strings.

Enjoy 🙂
