Playing Since: 1968

Experience Level: Purty Good

frailin has made 20 recent additions to Banjo Hangout 

Interests:
[Teaching] [Jamming] [Socializing] [Helping]

Occupation: Web publisher (Autism Hangout dotcom), writer, teacher and now, documentarian! Yee-ha!

Gender: Male

Age: 61

My Instruments:
Right now I play 2 Chuck Lee Marble Falls, both with Bill Rickard tubaphone tone rings. I love sampling other banjos, but have settled on Chuck's for their consistent performance (legendary neck sensitivity) and sound.

I play "Old Time Gospel and Bluegrass" with a MPLS-based group called Singleton Street. We've recorded two CDs: "Wingin' It", our Gospel music and "Almost Live" our first CD.

My old-timey group is the Eelpout Stringers. These guys are great fun! Check out some of our music on my MP3 page. Other cuts also found at: www.eelpoutstringers.com


Favorite Bands/Musicians:
Got LOTs of influences. From Unca Dave Macon and Stringbean right up to several of today's performers (i.e. Dwight Diller, Mac Benford, Mark Schatz and Joe Newberry). My favorite of all time though, is "Old Wide Load"... Tommy Thompson of the Red Clay Ramblers. And someone here on the hangout that's incredible is frailblazer (Ric Hollander).

Craig, Thanks for posting Meeting in the Air. Our band The Ache'n Back String Band is starting to play it. We hear it from the Flat Mountain Girls site. It is difficult to hear the banjo in the Flat Mountain Girls version, but I can now pick it up better from your recording.  By the way, the quality of the song seems to be a lot better is it is downloaded to Windows Media Player. I would have rated it a 5 star if I had listened on Windows Media Player first. Hope this doesn't make BHO mad. Ralph White, Neoga, IL

Great picking on all songs, Craig. If you are traveling through WV you are going to have to tell me so I can watch that right hand of yours in action! Maybe then I can figure out how to frail this instrument!

Craig,  I fellowship a holiness church over in Six Mile, SC and the 72 year old pastor sings this song a hundred miles an hour and I love it.  You done a great job and I really enjoyed it!!!   Pentecostal Picker
