Let's bring old time banjo to the streets!!!

Posted by fabriziobezzini on Monday, October 24, 2011

Hi folks!

I'm a new entry.... I'm Fabrizio from Bologna (Italy),I'm a music lover and I like listen and play good music! Since years I played a lot of country-blues (Blind Boy Fuller, Gary Davis...) around Italy and expecially in the main square of the city I live. I think people like to listen different sounds, different styles and anything different of the "mainstream".... In september 2011 I started a project bringing old time banjo to the streets of Italy....seems strange but people are courius and they like it! I think we need more banjo to the streets so if you agree with me what are you waiting for? .... let's keep old time banjo music alive in the 21st century and share it with new and courius listeners! take your banjo and play it on the streets!!!

Ciao! We went to Lucca and couldn't find head nor hair of mandolinas, let alone banjo. I'm so glad you're working on this serious issue. Gelato and banjo--a perfect pair!
