My new friend Jose from Buenos Aires is introducing me to a whole slew of folks in Buenos Aires ( that I didn't even know existed ) who like bluegrass and old-time. Looks like we are arranging a get together for the near future....I'm super excited!!! I'll play my mandolin during the bluegrass stuff, but when we play the old-time stuff.....my fretless banjo of course!6 comments

Almost all of my family is from Daviess, Ohio, and Hancock counties in north western Kentucky in the Owensboro Kentucky area and they are great folks and a great family...boy do I love them and miss them! Especially my "grandfather" who died in 2001 and my granny, who were both a huge influence on my love for country, folk music, old-time fiddlin/banjo and bluegrass, and also fishing and "fox-hunting" and raising hunting dogs, as I used to spend my three months of summer every year with my grandparents in Kentucky from the time I was about 7 or 8 years old way on up into my twenties. My birthplace, however, is a little town in south central Illinois called "Effingham" ( about an hour and twenty minutes east of St Louis Missouri, and another 50 minutes or so west of the Indiana Illinois state line ) but I was raised in central Florida. I have always been involved in music my whole life starting in band when I was real young all the way up to studying one year of music in college. I sang tenor and played mandolin in a bluegrass group for about 5 years called "Jerry Sanders & Seminole Ridge". Jerry used to sing and play in Carl Storys band back in the 80s. Now I am married and living and working abroad in Argentina and playing a little spanish guitar part time ( and the banjo. I originally came to S.A. to study the bible and do some missionary work and felt led personally by faith to stay around for a while and improve my spanish speaking skills. Now I have a Goodtime Crow banjo and a Classic scooped neck Goodtime banjo, and now recently a fretless Pisgah banjo 12" rim and I am launching out into the world of clawhammer banjo like I have wanted to now for a while!
