Boston Jig

James Buckley’s ‘Boston Jig’ (Buckley’s New Banjo Guide, 1860) was a top contender for “Tune of the weekend” at AEBG VIII.

What Is This?

Long before jazz, old-time, or bluegrass, the banjo was associated with very different musical styles, now largely forgotten.

The music on this site is taken from (or inspired by) period sources from the 1800s through the early 1900s.
