Experience Level: Just Startin'

Tom Hanway has made 67 recent additions to Banjo Hangout 

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

Occupation: Composer, Author, Studio Musician, Recording Artist.

Gender: Male

Age: 55

My Instruments:
(1) Stelling SwallowTail Deluxe and (2) Standard. I co-designed the SwallowTail banjo with Geoff Stelling, (3) Nechville Meteor (acoustic/electric) with the "Galaxy" inlay. (4) I also have a 1918 Van Eps tenor which belonged to my grandfather, John Hanway, who bought it his freshman year, playing it in the Yale Mandolin and Banjo Club and Orchestra. It has been restored by Tom Cussen (Clareen Banjos) of Clarinbridge, Co. Galway, Ireland. I fool around and play a bit of "trad" on it - both jazz and Irish traditional music.

Favorite Bands/Musicians:
Earl Scruggs, Don Reno (father and son), Ralph Stanley, J.D. Crowe, Tony Trischka, Bill Keith, Pete Wernick, Sonny Osborne, Bill Emerson, Raymond Fairchild, Eddie Adcock, Allen Shelton, Butch Robins, Béla Fleck, Jerry Garcia, Vassar Clements, Herb Pedersen, David Bromberg, Tim O'Brien, Sammy Shelor, Jim Mills, Scott Vestal, The Beatles, The Stones, the Grateful Dead, Jorma Kaukonen, New Grass Revival, Sam Bush, Stringbean, Joni Mitchell, Roy Huskey, Jr., The Bothy Band, Altan, Michael Coleman, Cream, Hendrix, Carole King, James Taylor, Johnson Mountain Boys, Andy McGann, Tommy Peoples, Tony DeMarco, Doc Watson, Rev. Gary Davis, Jesse Fuller, all the great bluesmen, all the early R&B and jazz cats. I love jugbands, jam bands, and rockabilly bands.

My dad, "Wild Jack", who showed the whole family what great fun it is to jam with old jazz recordings. I was tapping my foot to traditional jazz and Big Band music at a very impressionable age. I learned a lot of jazz standards that way, melodies for which I have no title.
