Buckley’s Banjo Jig

Credited to James Buckley, from Phil Rice’s 1858 book ‘Correct Method for the Banjo: With or Without a Master.’ The third part is pretty much identical to the second part of ‘Power of Music’.

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.
