I've had a wonderful summer or music, music festivals, teaching and banjo and uke camps and meeting lots of the folks I hear from via Banjo Hangout and email, but don't personally know. American Banjo Camp was delightful this year and I loved doing a duet with Mac Benford. I also really enjoyed hanging with and playing music with Jason and Pharris Romero. Lovely folks, fabulous playing and harmony singing. We rocked an old time session at ABC!
I went directly to teach at the Port Townsend Ukulele Festival and had a great time with Aaron Keim and Jere Canote teaching clawhammer ukulele. The soprano, concert and tenor ukuleles often have a high g string that sounds/works a lot like a banjo 5th string and makes it a lovely instrument for clawhammer. I will soon be posting a few clawhammer uke videos.

Greatly enjoyed being in one of your classes at ABC. Hope to see you again at next year's camp. I also hope some of your talent will rub off on me. Thank you for being there and for sharing your instruction which I highly recommend.
