Banjo Lovers Online


Posted by cnsayer on Wednesday, June 2, 2010

I recently returned from one of those tours that reminds me why I love being a musician.  Sometimes everything falls into place, as on this trip, where every performance we did was pure pleasure.  That feeling of joy – that special kind of high -- which results from participating in the creation of good music is what keeps me doing what I do.   

In this case, the required agenda was pure hot swing, as opposed to a more eclectic genre mix, as we were performing at a jazz festival in Dresden, Germany, followed by a jazz concert in Berlin.   (Btw, if you’re interested, our drummer, Larry Eagle -- you might remember him from Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions band -- brought along his video camera and tripod and posted some clips on YouTube… more are forthcoming.)   

My point is simply that every now and then I get a reality check of how incredibly lucky I am to play music.  And on such a cool instrument!  But then all of you on Banjo Hangout already know just what I mean.

Hi Cynthia...I enjoy your music (I have your CD's and have seen/heard you in person). Thanks for sharing your recent Euro trip. "South of the Border" is still my favorite...

Good for you.
It's nice when you hear of people doing creative things.
There's too much media coverage of the ugly side of life.
Don't let fame screw with your head, stay beautiful.
