I fell in love with Banjo playing in 1967 in Newfoundland. Never forgot the experience but life 'got in the way' and I never learned to play until eight years ago (41 years later).... Feels like a big hole has been plugged in my psyche - always loved old time music and how have some hope of learning to play it... 'My goal is to be an excellent banjo player before I die...... No hurry....'
