A few pictures from past tours & s24o’s

Here’s my first ham-fisted attempt at making a video using a collection of photos from tours and S24O’s of years gone by.  The melodious instrument you hear is not an angelic harp, as you may have thought, but a banjo played in the traditional Appalachian claw-hammer style.  The artist is completely unknown, as are most banjo virtuosos.

Enjoy, Jack

    Very nice. I always enjoy some good ol’ American banjo music.

    Enjoyed the pictures and music. I always laugh when I see those pictures of the overlooks on the BRP and everything is fogged in.

    Thanks. Yeah, it’s funny now. A bit on the scary side then. All the bikes and motorcycles were off the side of the road. But the cars (or I should say their drivers) were afraid to pull off into the grass so every so often you’d see a car creep by. Many with their headlights and flashers off.

    It happens from time to time, round a corner and all of a sudden you’re in a cloud.

    Thanks for the comment, Jack

    Very enjoyable indeed! The music was spot on for the images. This brought a smile to my face after having been working on finances this morning!
