I've been playing with a bluegrass band from Elberton, Georgia recently. Their name is "Waitin' On Parts" and I am going to be playing clawhammer banjo with them tomorrow here in Athens at the Melting Point. I usually play 3-finger style, but tomorrow I'll be playing several songs in clawhammer with Allan McCall who will be picking 3-finger style. The two styles compliment eachother really well. We'll do some old traditionals, just the two of us on our banjos during part of the show. The rest of the band will play the majority of the show with Allan McCall playing banjo lead.
My radio show, Bluegrass Junction, will continue for 3 more weeks. If you'd like to hear it, go to www.wuog.org or tune your radio to 90.5 FM WUOG if your're in north Georgia on Sundays from 10am-12pm. My show will resume sometime in early August when school starts back. It will most likely have a different time shift then, so don't worry.

I began playing banjo when my Dad showed me a few licks on his old banjo. I found it a lot of fun and recently I have picked up the old clawhammer playing style. My banjo inspirations are Earl Scruggs, Ralph Stanley, Stringbean, and my Dad. I also have a YouTube account and my username is "Banjomountain", so you might see me pick some tunes on YouTube. I participated in The Earl Scruggs Tribute event at Turner Field in Atlanta, Georgia on September 13, 2006 for an audience somewhere in the thousands. The Scruggs Tribute event set a new Guiness World Record for the Largest Instrumental Ensemble in history(239 banjo players playing Foggy Mountain Breakdown for 5 minutes).
