ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Just in case anyone out there may think John Saunders, their favorite Canadian Banjo Master, may have abandoned his Montreal bluegrass roots when he moved down to the states way back in 1982 to continue his Bluegrass career while also playing Celtic and jazz with all these musicians all over Ohio and beyond, all the while composing very different and elegantly complex banjo and guitar pieces which inspired him eventually to form a Renaissance band named Silent Lion, performing authentic historical and ancient music ( along with some appropriate originals) where he performs monster Irish Bouzouki and mandolin, and even so, still plays banjo,( and guitar, too), in the Silent Lion duo which performs all over and plays their many originals that fuse all the Medieval/Celtic/ Renaissance/Bluegrass/jazz influences with a certain romantic conviction, he hasn't.

He still has banjo blood and writes banjo tunes, and here are presented 21 originals written during the late 70's-early 2000's.
