Banjo versus TV week 81: Jug Band Jubilee

Posted by jrjenks on Friday, October 16, 2009

A check-in on the Banjo versus TV project — J.R.'s ongoing plan to spend more time on his banjo than on TV. This post covers 9/13/2009 through 9/19/2009.
Banjo 520 hrs, TV 451 hours

I made that decision and went to the National Jug Band Jubilee in Louisville, Kentucky. I had a most excellent time.

The lineup was terrific. I took lots of pictures.

Update 10/17/2009:

Arlo Leach has posted a nice video from the post-Jubilee, late-night jam session.

That's my washboard that Peter Menta ("Washboard Slim") is playing. He makes it sound good!


Also in the last week:

  • I've accumulated a few low- to mid-end banjos and each has a major shortcoming:

    Four troubled banjos that could become three good ones

    So I'm starting to move parts between them with the plan of turning four troubled banjos into three good ones.
