I was so sorry to hear that banjoist and Banjo Hangout member Jack Hatfield's home and music business were destroyed by the Tennessee wildfires in Pigeon Forge. I have purchased many of his instructional materials over the years and I hope that this valuable resource can be restored. We wish him all the best as he recovers from this devastating loss.Add Comment

Folk music players first got me interested in the banjo and I suspect they influenced many others in the North in the 60's. These include Dave Guard (Kingston Trio), Alex Hassilev (Limeliters), and obviously, Pete Seeger. Banjo teachers who have been a godsend for us self-taught pickers: Janet Davis, Tony Trischka, Murphy/Casey Henry and Pete Wernick. Bluegrass favorites of mine: Curtis McPeake, Carl Jackson, Alan Munde, Butch Robbins, Eric Weissberg and, of course, Earl. Bruce Springsteen along with his Seeger Sessions Band with Greg Liszt on banjo for getting me interested in the banjo again after a 20 year layoff. Steve Ivey and Diamond Rio for showing how the bluegrass style can be applied to contemporary Christian music. Chris Cairns, banjo instructor extaordinaire at the 2008 Door County Bluegrass Camp.
