frailin has made 41 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: 63

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.

For 10 years I played "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).

when I've gone to see Del McCoury, people always holler out for this one. You all do a real nice job with it!

Man, I am lovin' this one! I just heard it for the first time a few days ago, and I'll bet I've listened to it a dozen times so far.

Good work!

I started viewing your homepage and became hooked, right under my chin.  You and all the gang have more fun and it show in your music.  Strong beat, clear sound with great tunes.  I started viewing and listening tonight at 10pm and here it is almost 2am.  Where did the time go?  I too much fun.  You are more than purty good.  Thanks for the friendship. I will come to your site more often.
