Laying low

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

i think I'll be pulling back from posting on the BHO. I'll still be around and will occasionally post but for the most part just lay out. The forums aren't what they used to be and it's getting to the point where I'm out of touch with it, am tired of reading trolling and or trying to help. 

Anyway, anyone needing banjo work, lesson or just to talk banjo can always send me a message here, I will lurk and read and get the messages, keep picking and loving that banjo!


Birthday Thanks!

I will have been playing banjo for 40 years as of December 2014..gulp, and performing professionally for over 25 years now. I also have over 25 years as a session player and teacher. My band experience covers over (gulp) 50 groups, more than likely. Some of the bands Ive played with include Wyatt Rice and Santa Cruz, Johnny and Jeanette Williams Band, Arnie Solomon Band,The Shady Grove Band,Allegheny Moon, NOTA, Chuck and the Waggin Ears, Rain Check and too many others to name. I also play resonator guitar, transitioning with many bands as a resophonic player, and or banjoist. My musical 'schooling' was playing for Friday and Saturday night dances, playing and jamming at fiddlers conventions, jamming at Festivals, local jam sessions and eventually playing in semi-pro bands and then full time touring. My touring experience covers the North American continent and Europe, playing all major festivals and venues. Im guessing my total gig total is over 5000 at this point. Whew, I am glad to get all that stuff out of the This part of the State of North Carolina is 'ground zero' for great music and musicians and I have been blessed to to have been born and raised here. Im also an avid 'contributor' ...that sounds self promoting...I prefer avid 'poster', on the Banjo Hangout. I enjoy helping up and coming pickers, learning new things from others here, listening to the great music being posted here, collaborating with my musical cohorts here, and just being in the midst of such a great banjo website! I try to give back when I can and my "lick Of The Week" video lessons here on the site is one small way to do that I hope. I'm also a long time Luthier/repairman and occasional instrument builder. My dad, Wallace Boulding, was a life long luthier and passed the trade on to me. The name of my shop is "NoteAble Repair and is located in beautiful Mount Airy NC. Most of all, I want to thank God for what talents I have and thanks to Earl Scruggs too. He IS the banjo man. All bluegrass banjoists owe Earl a huge debt of gratitude for his genius and his music. Thanks Earl !
