I think my old-time banjo playing has been most influenced by the following examples, from whose recordings I have listened to slavishly, attempting to steal everything I possibly could; Wade Ward, Fred Cockerham, Franklin George, and Dock Boggs. Heath Curdts taught me a few tunes in person, and showed me some of the techniques that he learned from Tommy Jarrell. Other, influences that quickly come to mind include Morgan Sexton, Roscoe Holcomb, Mike Seeger, Bob Flesher, and R.D. Lunsford. Now that I am learning the fiddle (as of 2010), I have especially strong admiration for Tommy Jarrell, Posey Rorer, and perhaps, Billy Mathews.

|I recently received Adam Hurts CD from Elderly, cause I always sneak in a CD or two after ordering something, like strings, or heads or whatever (hey Zepp, if your reading, I love you too!, don't take it hard, but I used to live next to Lansing). I have been listening to it. Very, very melodic/modern (don't plan to explore myself), but nice. I just found a new favorite tune that I must add to my ol' repetoire- make it 51 tunes. I love Adam Hurts rendition of Sandy River Belle. Great example of the brush technique. Gonna have to try that stuff.|
