Cello Banjo World

Thursday, September 6, 2012

Greetings Banjo Friends

Well I'm finished with summer concert work and ready to get back into some Internet fun with cello banjos. I'm looking forward to uploading more videos with the Gold Tone CEB-5 and CEB-4, the five and four string versions. My CEB-4 was just optimized and I'm enjoying it in cello tuning, and capoed on the 7th for GDAE.

My interest in cello banjos is twofold: I'm a cello banjo specialist and dealer for Gold Tone - and it's my favorite instrument.

Here's an endorsement from Wayne Rogers, president of Gold Tone:

"Occasionally, a Gold Tone dealer takes a special interest in a particular product and gives it his all. Paul Roberts of BanjoCrazy.com has set up his site featuring our cello banjos and has provided history, interviews, playing techniques, collections of music and videos, and a wealth of information on the specifications. If you’re interested in learning more about cello banjos, visit BanjoCrazy.com and talk to Paul who is an authority on this special instrument.” Sincerely yours, Wayne A. Rogers

Paul recently released "Banjos Dreaming" - http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/paulroberts8 - original atmospheric melodies composed for the cello banjo and performed on cello banjos, banjo-lute, doumbek, sitar and guzheng. Paul Roberts is a multi-instrumentalist whose background is in musical composition, concert performing, musical enrichment programs for children, concert production and music therapy. Paul has performed over two thousand concerts in elementary schools throughout the western states with multi-instrumentalist Carla Roberts. He has produced two hundred fine arts concerts for other artists. Paul's work as a music therapist is featured in Gracefully Insane, a book about McLean Hospital by Alex Beam. In the 1960s, Paul performed with Jon Landau (Bruce Springsteen's manager/producer) and Kate Taylor (sister to James Taylor). Also in the 60s, he studied sitar with Dr. Shyam Yodh in Boston and with Ustad Rais Khan in India. Paul lives next to the forest in Colorado, where he builds his life around composing and recording.
