Kenny Cantrell...

Posted by derekanjo on Friday, January 25, 2008

...Is freakin' awesome. Upon Listening to my Cedar Hill CDs the past couple of days, I figured out just how much Kenny's picking has influenced me. He and Blake Williams were two of the first banjo players I heard live, and my two favorites. So mix them and I guess you have me. But anyway, if you've never heard Kenny play, you definitely need to. It doesn't get much better.

Kenny and I talk quite often at festivals as the group plays in Arkansas a lot.  Yes, he is a great player and I teased him when they did an article on him in Banjo Newsletter last summer. He also gave me his opinions when I did the first banjos. Great guy too.

I only hear YOU, when you play Derek. They may have made an impression on you but you have a different take each time I hear you and it's a good sound.

But if it means much to you, I'll say you have a Blakenny sound.

Later Dale
