Below are seven old songs done on banjo and some guitar. My brother Jeeter can be seen in some of these, playing along. These great old songs were brought to me by The New Lost City Ramblers, who learned them from old 78s recording in the 20s and 30s.
Below are a series of 30-minute videos of my shows and also a concert performance. Please consult your doctor before imbibing such a large dose of Uncle Jon. Results may vary.
