More Press,thoughts, etc...(with video included)

Sunday, September 28, 2008 @10:40:02 AM

The Banjo workshop I gave was again a HUGE success!
HUGE thanks to all of those who came out with AND without banjos
some to play and some who are just interested and admiring from a distance on the many different sounds that a banjo can come up with.

The weather was absolutely PERFECT for this venue.

Though I never hit the main stage for performing,
I did get to jam with MANY of the players who came out to pick.
HERE is a link to the article write-up
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, The Mayflies are coming up with cd #4 in the studio.
This is the 2nd cd poject that I have been a part of.
With name changes, line up changes and
challenges all along the way, we have a new sound
and direction that I feel is definately outside the normal box.
Definately taking the banjo to places it has never been before!

The Fall Frolic benefit is STILL going on in Laurens, Iowa.
The Mayflies played one of the best shows we have EVER played before.
Venturing out into unknown new musical territory that can only be done
when  the feel is right to do so. The boys played their fingers off!
I am so very proud of them!!!

The Mayflies played from 10pm-2am. Then after we tore the equipment down,
we played acoustically until about 3:30 or 4am. Slept for a few hours then
got up to hit the road to head back (4.5 hours) for an afternoon studio session.
I really wish we could have stayed---it was such a good time!

You have got to hear these new mixes we are doing of this live sound we are
coming up with. Very reminicent of some of the older 70's edgy southern rock or jam

bands that were VERY popular when we had another war going on in the 60's.
We also find that the times are calling for it! People again are SCREAMING for

change! With financial upheaval and the country really struggling for unity and

better days--- this is, and always will be, a musical outlet for people to unite in one

common cause.    

Sorry about being so busy everyone...
with work, lessons, studio work and gigs,
it keeps me jumping through hoops!
I could not be happier.....
