Also some friends from southern Ontario who may not be as famous, but I learn something every time I play with them or listen to them: Jay Edmonds, Rick Baur, Dennis Delorme, Karen Taylor, Kate Jarrett, Sam Allison, Jimmy Bowskill, Ted Staunton and Teilhard Frost (who also builds wonderful gourd banjos)...
<><><><><><><><><><><><>

You will notice that all of these (except John Hartford, whose playing I have loved since I first bought Morning Bugle thirty years ago) are old-time banjo players, since this is the type of banjo music I enjoy playing. I have many favourite musicians who play 3-finger/bluegrass style banjo (like Al Kirby) and tenor banjo and who play other instruments, but if I put them all down the list would be too long for anyone to bother to read it (probably is anyway). I realize that some of the players I have listed are also bluegrass players, but their old timey style was what attracted me to their playing.

My Best Move Ever

Friday, July 14, 2017 @4:15:55 PM


Today is Maggie's and my 33rd wedding anniversary.  Best move I ever made!

The first time we ever performed as a duo, before we were married, we did a three song set at an open mic at the folk club Folk At The Forum in Cobourg's Victoria Hall.  The songs were You Are My Flower (Carter Family), Big Enough For Two (Lyn & Jay Unger) and When You And I Were Young (Johnson/Butterfield)

They say I am feeble with age, Maggie,
I step not as sprightly as then,
My face is a well written page, Maggie,
And time alone wields the pen.

They say we are aged and grey, Maggie,
As spray by the white breakers flung,
But to me you're as fair as you were, Maggie,
When you and I were young.


It seems a little more convincing when we sing it today.
