Land of Canaan

From Buckley’s Banjo Guide of 1860. Still working out how best to play that little run in the 7th and 15th measures.

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.
