Playing Since: 1975
Experience Level: Purty Good

Interests:
[Jamming] [Socializing]

Occupation: Cartoonist/illustrator

Gender: Male
Age: 66

My Instruments:
An open back Gold Tone CC Old-Time banjo.
An antique fretless banjo of unknown origin. Found on the wall of a barn in West Virginia, and I bought it on eBay. It's estimated to be from the mid- to late 1800's.
An old japanes bluegrass banjo I bought in 1975. I don't remember it's name, I have painted it over, but it sounded like some japanes motorbike. The name, that is. Not the banjo :-) It was probably Yamaha or something.
A banjo mandolin and a guitjo.
And apart from that some guitars. A Blueridge BR 143, Harmony parlor 1920, Republic parlor 2008, Washburn parlor 2008, Silvertone archtop 1960, Kentucky mandolin, old Landola mandolin from FInland, and a Gold Tone GM 6 six string guitar mandolin, a Lanikai Baritone Ukulele, a MacNally Strumstick, an autoharp, fiddle, piano, mountain dulcimer etc. etc.

Favorite Bands/Musicians:
Oh, too many to mention. Maybe later.
But Doc Watson certainly is one of them.
Though I play old time, my musical tastes are not limited to genres.
I listen to different kinds of folk music, classical, jazz, blues, cajun, zydico, bluegrass, western swing, rock, etc. etc.
Somebody said: There are two kinds of music, good and bad. It's not limited to genres.
And Tony Rice one of the greatest flatpicking guitarists has said, that one ought to listen to all kinds of music, because it will all help forming your musical identity. And I think that's true.

Born in Odense, Denmark 1951. Work as a cartoonist/illustrator. You can see some of my work on my website http://www.jesperdeleuran.dk/English%20index.html. Sorry most of the text is in danish, but the pictures can be understood everywhere I guess. The startpage can be seen in english too though. I began getting piano lessons, when I was 8. Got a guitar when I was 13, played and sang in a band playing mainly Beatles and Stones tunes, but when the folk revival form the US hit Europe, I began singing folksongs. When I was in my twenties I picked up the five-string banjo, the mandolin and the violin (I consider myself more of a fiddle OWNER than a fiddler. I never became very good on the violin, but as long as you're not dead, you hope to continue to learn). Later I have picked up the autoharp, and recently I bought a mountain dulcimer. My main interests in recent years have been playing old-time music with Tobias Enevoldsen in The Deleuran Enevoldsen Duo. He's also a member here on BHO. I have also been a member of a band called Big Hungry Joe. We released a CD with Old-time music in 2008 called Hillbilly Hayride which can be purchased from CD Baby http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/bhj If you would like to see more of my videos you can look me up here: http://www.youtube.com/user/r810s
