You're welcome! 

Kinda irksome when they can't bother to list what's played. 

I got lucky... this time.

There are so many wonderful traditional fiddle tunes that some get lost by the wayside... until someone places them in the spotlight. 

Thought I'd post a tutorial here, for the "Coleraine Jig" because of the performance stringy shared - hopefully more members will try it! 

 

Yes, I have heard "Bag O Spuds" before, when I was digging through some of Fergal Scahill's "tune a day" videos, maybe a year ago.  The name caught my eye, but felt it was a bit beyond me at that time.  Saw several other versions (some I really didn't care for), then I ran across Duncan Cameron's tutorial for "The Drunken Landlady" and had thought it was the same tune (must be losing my mind)!  I do love a tune that uses all the strings.

I just had to link you here... because the midges got him!

@stringy - btw, still having a chuckle - we used Butane lighter fluid to cut laminated glass.  Always got Oooh's and Aaah's, every time (doesn't take much to amuse people)! 

...and I want a 5-string Tenor banjo!!!!

My tenor is a four string,  I do have a five string bano though which I use for  picking blue grass, havent played that for about a year though, same as my guitar, got discarded because of violin. five string isnt really suited for Irish tunes, unless you play chords that is like luke kelly did. I do sometimes sing along with the five string, all Irish songs which is what my voice is suited for. Have yu heard Gerry o Connor, if not give him a listen, he does an axcellent job of bag o spuds and in my opinion is the best banjo player in the world, he also plays fiddle with the dubliners sometimes now.
