Every year I accompany my wife to the Sheep and Wool festival held in Rhinebeck NY. It turns out that Rhinebeck is 30 minutes away from Bill Keith's home in Woodstock NY. I spoke to Bill the other day to order a set of his D tuners and mentioned that we were coming his way the following day. I asked if it would be ok to stop by and pick them up on our way home. He said sure!
It was an honor to meet and chat with such a legendary and influential master of the banjo.

Great picture, you might be interested to know that the very next day (10/20), John Sebastian and David Grisman were standing in that same kitchen and Eric Weissberg was standing there later in the evening (as was I, but I don't count). (Bill shoudl charge admission to his kitchen.) Bill is a sweet guy, glad you got some time with him.

Rinebeck is about 45 minutes from the Old Chatham Sheep Herding Co., and I'm about 5 minutes from there!
