I've always worked in the printing trade, but I am now a semi-retired photographer.. I live in Ivybridge, Devon, UK, and always loved the banjo sound. Became fascinated by Patrick Costello lessons, (used to sit in front of the computer, learning how to frail, and I didn't even have an instrument - you'd all have had a big laugh!!). Eventually got a Rally 5-string Open Back but thought I'd try picking so managed to get some picks. Enjoyed that, but moved on to a Countryman 5-string with resonator. Getting there. Used to "play" the piano accordion (badly, with sheet music, as long as there not too many sharps and flats!), but don't have an accordion now - that was many years ago. Found a get-together once a month in Teignmouth, Devon (UK) on a Thursday. Good to be able to hear others playing - maybe one day I'll get to play along with them too.
