Howdy

Posted by banjercraver on Thursday, September 25, 2008

I've been playin' de old banjer again, and have been thoroughly enjoying my Bart Reiter.  I have over 25 years in on the clawhammer now and how I got started you can check out my bio.

I've always been a highly melodic player and also play tunes in 6/8... (Jigs.)  My banjo playing has grown more conservative lately... I have to laugh about that.... One time I was at a contest and the legendary Woody Simmons was there and I ended up beating him with my psychadelic version of Old Joe Clark...  he was hoppin' mad!  At the time I wasn't aware of Woody's famous highly competitive spirit... But I realize he was right... he should've won.  Nowadays anytime I start gettin to notey, I can't help but think of Woody! 

I specialize in old music from the Appalachians of SW PA, Western MD and some of WV...

Have started to teach and play out again... more about me at:
