Happy Banjo Friday, kids! & in order to ensure that it’s a happy Friday indeed, I have a sweet, sweet banjo love song for your listening pleasure today.
If you tuned in last week, you know that I designated November, at least in terms of the Banjo Fridays, to be Danny Barnes month—because I believe November is a month when we often need a mood boost, & Barnes is someone very capable of giving us that!
I’ve written about Danny Barnes in the past (& here), so rather than go back over old territory, I’ll simply say that this song, “Overdue,” comes off his wonderful 2009 release Pizza Box, & that this version was recorded right down the street from me at Mississippi Studios in Portland. “Overdue” features Barnes making full use of looping technology, & doing so to great effect. If you love great banjo playing & innovative music combined with excellent songwriting, I encourage you to check out more of Barnes’ music—& definitely catch one of his live shows if you have the chance!
But for now, have fun with “Overdue” & enjoy your Friday!
