Banjo Interviews

Posted by sagebum on Wednesday, April 11, 2007

I have had the pleasure of interviewing some interesting banjo personalities for Mel Bay's Banjo Sessions website.    These fine people deserve recognition for their talent and hard work.  I hope you will take a few minutes to follow the links below to learn more about them.

Thanks for adding that Mary.   Sometime when we make a trip to the southeast we will have to time it for one of your concerts!
