YouTube video help

Featured Posts

Hi, can anyone help?

A couple of months ago I found a rather good video of a boat going up the Atherstone flight, very professionally done, with lots of windlass work, and rushing water and background music of, I think, banjo music, rather than the usual wind and flapping anoraks. The film maker had made a couple of canal based films and some on other topics, and I think she might have had her own YouTube channel.
 

I promised to sent it to a friend and now, of course, I can’t find it.  It’s a bit of a longshot but if it rings a bell with anyone I’d love find it again. 
cheers

If someone was playing the banjo when I was going up towards Atherstone I would ;

a) Go very quick

b) Keep going flat out. 

 

It's the canoeists' mantra:  I hear banjoes, paddle faster!

Not sure if this is the one?    It’s a piano rather than banjo.......

The film is by Mykaskin and a search for Historic Narrowboat Pair on the Coventry Canal carrying coal should find it.

I think it was banjo, or maybe banjo and fiddle. It sounded a bit like Irish session music to me. Not sure about Rebecca Jane Photography, I’ll see if I can find her.

This one? Atherstone flight. Banjo towards the end.

That is one I was thinking of but thought it was one of Rebecca's rather than Mike's, I didn't go and look for it to check. Rebecca's is probably of long lining up Audlem.

Now, long lining could very well be the one, have you got a link? I still can’t find it.

This is the one I was referring to...

Not Atherston locks either but Audlem locks for Aquarius and Ilford.

Dear oh dear, I couldn’t have got it more wrong if I’d tried. 

But thank you for doing so.  I really enjoyed watching the videos and I suppose it’s easy if you know what you’re doing 😂😂

I was concerned about the banjo being aloud (sic) near the cut.

Shortly after buying our house in rural australia the local village hall advertised ‘duelling banjo festival‘ 

We knew at that point it was join em or get out of town.

Tragic if they have followed us back.
