Tottenham Bluegrass Banjo Children Talent Contest

Here is a poem to dedicate to one of our favorite musical workshops
“Ode to a Banjo”

Alas! My banjo, thou art broken.
I quietly lay thee down to rest
Accept these lines, an humble token
From one who deems that thou hast blest
I know hard things said of thee
My once vivacious friend
And those who hate high revelry
Rejoice at thine end
But still to me a friend thou wert
For with thy cheerful song
Ye could the darkest hours convert
And bid care flee along
For they were songs I understood
Not the high class throbs and moans
Real human songs, not angels food
Were in thy lovely tones.
I loved you not for virtues sake
For naught of her ye knew
Ye ever were a shameless rake
And yet I loved ye true
I loved you for your very sins
You merry hearted knave
I loved you for those wicked dins
That made the parsons rave. Anonymous, 1700’s

-Nat T. Winston Sr. 1918
