The 1964 Philadelphia Folk Festival Banjo Contest (with me winning the prize for bluegrass)

Posted by Steve Arkin on Monday, February 7, 2011

I just posted a video of the banjo contest at the '64 Philly Festival. I won the bluegrass division (and an RB-250 Mastertone). Benjie Aronoff won the clawhammer prize.  This video was edited from an hour-long DVD of home movies taken at the Philly and Newport festivals in 1964.  It took me four years and help from my son-in-law to get it ripped, edited, and uploaded (also on YouTube and Facebook).  See my notes on the video for more detail.

And don't forget to sign up for Banjo Camp North--it doesn't get any better than it wil be this year: http://www.mugwumps.com/bcn.html
