Ok, so I've had my Stromberg for about 3 days now and I LOVE IT!! It has a mellow, slightly deeper sound than my last banjo. No idea what year/model it is (Tom Cussen estimated circa .1925) as apparently Strombergs never had serial numbers. Haven't had a chance to take any photos yet since I've been busy with work but will try to take some and post them at the weekend...
On this week's playlist....
The Morning Thrush/Jessie's(Clare Reel)/Paddy Fahey's,

Ballinasloe?? Tell me please, do you know a lady by the name of Christina Conroy? I met a young lady of that name from that town back in the late 1970's. Yes I know it's a long shot - ;0)
