The Bobolink


George L. Lansing, born at Troy, N.Y. in 1860, was a well-known American banjo teacher and composer, with many of his banjo solos re-published in England by Clifford Essex himself, although this one does not seem to have been among them.   Lansing was one of the famous Boston Ideals Quartet, and was an important and influential figure on the American banjo scene for many years.  He wrote some of the most popular solos of the period such as ‘The Darkie’s Awakening’ and ‘The Darkie’s Dream’, but ‘The Bobolink’ is not so well-known.  It is a tuneful piece in three sections, the first two in G, and the third in C, with the first two bars of the second section imitating the call of the bobolink, a small grassland bird native to North America.
