That  seems to be interesting. I will have a look at your stuff. Do all 3 CDs feature a lot of banjo?

Wow, you found that fast!  Thank you for writing!  Folks can listen to all three through the link, either on Amazon or Napster.  The last recording is my country blues and gospel guitar album with Vassar Clements.  I play my electric Nechville Meteor banjo on 'Southbound'.

Congratulations and good luck. One of these days I'm going to try and find out how you wound up in Ireland and whether it was banjo related. Peace.

Tom, thanks for the info.  I'm downloading Bucket from Rhapsody even as I type.
