Workshops or Playshops?

Posted by carljonesdittyville on Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Hello to all banjo enthusiasts far and wide--

I am speaking geographically, not physically!!  Although I believe I do tend to get a bit wider and heavier in the winter as I get a good bit less activity it seems.  Uncle Dave Macon,solved that by the way he did all his banjo-isometrics --spinning and whirling all the while playing or getting back to the strings just in time.  Warming up stretches for the hands and arms all always a good idea, especially in colder temperatures.   As spring is rolling in, I wish you all plenty of musical opportunities to "roll" or "claw" or "pick" away on your banjos this season.

In April, I will be at the Bear On The Square Festival in Dahlonega, Georgia with my buddy and great fiddler, James Bryan---- we will be playing on the main stage Sat. April 16th from 1-2 p.m....I also wanted to mention that Friday April15th James will conduct a fiddle workshop and I will host a banjo workshop during the early afternoon.  You can go to for more info.    It's usually a great week end music and weather wise, so check it out if you can. 

I'll close by saying, if you do decide to spin or flip your banjo make sure you have plenty of room between you and listeners as banjo wounds are often painful and rarely forgotten!

A banjo wound to one person could wreck 2 heads at one time. Have fun on your travels Carl.
