Play 'Dat' Banjar Martin "Banjo Man" Liebschner, Jr.
All Instrumental

You can't help but rattle along with this collection of 22 eminently bone-able tunes from the 18th and 19th century.

Vintage Tunes Played on Vintage Instruments

This CD represents music from the 18th and 19th century using four uniquely original 19th century banjos. "I don't use any modern recording method," says Marty.
Sticklers for detail can tell you that although Red Wing was a pop hit in the 20th century (1907) by Kerry Mills, he adapted the tune from The Happy Farmer, aka The Merry Peasant, aka Frohlicher Landmann, originally written by Robert Schumann in 1848. (Mills also wrote Meet Me In Saint Louis, Louis which was a pop tune in 1904 and a hit with the release of its movie namesake in 1944.)

You Won't Find this Rare CD at the Local Music Store

The tunes are performed by Martin Liebschner, Jr. Marty is known as "Banjoman" in the reenacting community and works as a professional musician who specializes in 19th century instruments. He holds an academic degree in Early American History and has dedicated himself to living history, preservation and education.

Marty appears in TV and documentaries as a performer and music consultant in well over a dozen historical film productions. His historical film production credits include Gettysburg, Andersonville and Spotsylvania Court House.
