Paul Hornbeck has been playing clawhammer banjo for some 40 years. During that period, his musical career has gone all the way from oblivion to obscurity. He has been a member of such groups as Sweet Evening Breeze, J.P. Ringwort, The Yellow Snow Stringband, and others too fleeting or feckless to mention. In his younger days, he performed, alone and with various accomplices, at numerous coffee houses in Ontario and Quebec, and at the Mariposa Folk Festival, the Winnipeg Folk Festival, and the Leacock Humor Festival. His abiding love of old-time country music may be due to the fact that he attended (while in utero) a concert by the Carter Family.
