I first heard a banjo on the Muppet Show when I was 3, and I discovered Bill Monroe at age 7. Been knee-deep in Blue Grass. Scholar of early Blue Grass music and 1940s/50s culture and fashion. My main influences on the banjo are Don Reno, Don Stover, Rudy Lyle, Donnie Bryant, Ralph Stanley and Allen Shelton.
