Hey, folks, it’s time for Banjo Friday—& here to drive away the November doldrums for one & all & the post-holiday doldrums for those of us stateside is the wonderful Danny Barnes, our featured artist this month.

Today’s Danny Barnes’ selection comes from a show early this year, actually the same weekend as when I saw Barnes perform at Portland’s Crystal Ballroom, & right down the road in Forest Grove, Oregon. The song is “Rocket,” the title track from his 2011 ATO release. This live version differs considerably from what’s on the record, as the studio version is a hard rocker with distorted guitars; here we have some of Barnes’ beautifully composed & conceived looping with live banjo, & of course his always delightful songwriting.

Hope you enjoy it, & have a great Friday!
