“Cripple Creek” on the banjo, by Tracy Newman
Published on Aug 11, 2015
In 1965, I did 6 episodes of a public TV series for children called “What’s New.” I presented folk songs from all over the world, and many instruments, to the best of my ability at the time. We shot these episodes at Brooklyn College and Joan Sheppard was the director.
I have posted this before and will again because I love it, the lady is just delightful and it is one of the few renditions out there that get the dang song right!
Another is by Stringbean – that is also posted here – and it was played properly every week on Hee Haw but I can’t find that particular bit on yootoob, despite the many posts from the show on that site. Other than that the searches have been mighty bleak.
