Hi Cynthia Usually I think that one banjo is enough in a band but to hear you and Tony trischka together..... I'm sure it will be an exiting session!!! I would really like to be there an listen, only if there wasn't an ocean between us...... Anyway I agree that four and five string banjo worlds are closer then many of us think, I play some 5 string and of course there differences in techniques and fingerings but the sound is the same. By the way: I've been told that Bob Gillette (banjoist with Bix) used to play five string banjo, it's true? best fron your number 1 italian fan! ciao I

So how did the gig turn out?
I used to pick with a friend who played tenor while I'm a 5 picker. We made some pretty good music,I thought with just the two of us.It's a challenge to play good backup in a situation like that.I had entertained thoughts of recording some tunes but his hands gave out on him soon after and he couldn't play it any more.

The gig was nice, but Tony ended up not coming, which frankly didn't surprise me as it ended up to be really bad weather that night. Oh well. It was still a good gig, though, as the musicians not only swing but also have a western feel to their playing, which for me was different and fun to work with.
