10. Where is he now?

Posted by Rob MacKillop on Thursday, April 16, 2009

Well, I sold the Enoch fretless and have recently sold my soul to the classic banjo style. I have a Thompson and Odell Artist banjo from 1890s Boston, with nylgut strings, and am playing in the so-called 'guitar style'. Finally found my own little corner of the banjo world, well, not quite my own - there are many classic banjoists. Some of us hangout at the http://classic-banjo.ning.com/ site, and I also have a website http://www.classicbanjorm.com/ with videos, sound filesetc. I knew the banjo and I had a future together somehow, it just took me a little while to find the right style, technique, repertoire and instrument. I also have an 1880s fretless classic banjo on its way - currently stuck in Customs.

So, my BHO friends, I didn't give up, just moved sideways...

Jens Kruger writes and plays some great classical music. Although, I suspect I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. I think classical banjo is GREAT!!! It's a great niche to be in.
