Pie Baking Contest & Picking Party, Wed - Oct 14 - 7pm 'til late!

Thursday, October 1, 2009

Hey Portland, Oregon area BHO folk,

I'm hosting a pie baking contest and old time music picking party at my house on Mt Tabor in SE Portland on Wednesday, October 14, starting at 7:00pm and going until people get tired of picking.  Better than even chance there will be some square dancing going on in the living room, too.  This will be a fund raiser for Bill Martin's medical fund.  We'll just have a donation jar out for folk to contribute to.  Anyway, all are welocme.  Email me if you want more details or directions.

I learned the basics of clawhammer back in college in Sacramento, California, in the early eighties. But I didn't go very far with it at that time and eventually put my banjo aside for many years. I got interested again through the old time music revival going on here in Portland, Oregon, and started playing in earnest in the spring of 2004. I primarily used Perlman's, Leftwich's, and Krassen's books to learn, but also attended American Banjo Camp three times and the Dusty Strings Clawhammer Banjo Workshop twice. It was very cool to learn directly from some of the well known players in both cases. In 2006 I started attending festivals and getting out to jams. Then I played with local stringband Ebenezer for a couple of years, from 2007-2009. I started learning old time fiddle four years ago.
