Default A Promise of Spring - cello banjo, banjo lute, sitar, flutes

Here's an original tune. Hope you enjoy it.
I'm playing a banjo lute (5-course Sobell cittern strung with five strings), 5-string cello banjo, and sitar. Jessica Peterson (who created the visuals from images she captured in the Rocky Mountains) is playing silver flute, and a Ralph Sweet Eb Keyless Wood Flute. I composed the tune for cello banjo, and the rest evolved from there.

Nice tune. I particularly like it when the cello banjo kicks in.

That is good!
I thought I heard some medieval influences, and sometimes it goes quite oriental.

I'm a fan of unusual instruments, so this was right up my alley. I enjoyed it.

Tell me/us more about the cello banjo.

Thanks for the tune - nice mix there

For years I've been wanting to record my instruments together - but I'm far too tech unsavvy and just play the accordion instead..

Having developed the neural circuitry to be able to play accordion, I'll bet you can do it.
