Kevin Fore is a rare individual. He builds banjos, plays them (and wins awards) and is a walking history book of several of his banjo-related heroes. Among them, Kyle Creed and Benton Flippen are his personal favorites.
Kevin's banjo building and banjo playing closely pattern Kyle. His mentor and favorite live playing influence has been Benton. Kevin represents the best of both.
And as if that wasn't enough, Kevin is a leading player of "Round Peak" style. In this Program, Kevin and his wife Trish demonstrate the regional playing differences in "up the mountain" and "down the mountain" styles.
Here's another Show you'll probably want to watch twice... at least. :)
