Duelling Banjos was arranged and performed for the movie Deliverance by Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandell and was included on the soundtrack album. Dueling Banjos is an instrumental composition by Arthur Guitar Boogie Smith. The song was composed in 1955 by Smith Weissberg, a gifted multi-instrumentalist whose melodic banjo work on the 1973 hit single Dueling Banjos helped bring bluegrass music into the cultural mainstream, died on Sunday in a nursing home near Detroit. He was 80. Juliet Weissberg, his wife of 34 years, said the cause was complications of Alzheimers disease. Though the theme songs to the film Bonnie & Clyde 1967 and the CBS sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies, both recorded by Flatt and Scruggs, preceded Dueling Banjos in exposing wide audiences to bluegrass, neither made it to the pop Top 40. The rest of the soundtrack was made up of songs recorded in 1963 by Eric Weissberg and Marshall Brickman and released on an album called New Dimensions in Bluegrass. Largely as a result of its use in the movie, this in often associated with country bumpkins. The first few notes are often used in movies and TV shows to imply a hillbilly mentality.

Weissberg was a fixture on the New York folk scene before being enlisted to bring his banjo cover the traditional but largely unfamiliar instrumental with Steve Mandell for John Boormans adventure-thriller in 1972. When it was released as a single, it rose to No. 2 on the Billboard pop chart and stayed there for four weeks in 1973, blocked from the top spot only by Roberta Flacks Killing Me Softly With His Song.

Farewell Blues. Earl's Breakdown. Bluegrass musician Eric Weissberg, whose cover of the Arthur Guitar Boogie Smith instrumental Dueling Banjos became an unlikely pop hit when it appeared on the soundtrack to the 1972 film Deliverance, died Sunday at the age of 80 after a five-year struggle with dementia. His son, Will Weissberg, confirmed the musicians death to Rolling Stone. Eric Weissberg was a consummate musician, a solid and seemingly effortless player of stringed instruments of all kinds - banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, pedal steel, and string bass, his lifelong friend and frequent collaborator Happy Traum wrote
