Greate photo! Are you in Iraq? Always wondered what that culture would think about bluegrass banjo.

The locals think it's very interesting. There is one fellow from Turkey that works at the exchange that went nuts over it. The little group me and the gentleman in picture formed is called "The Taji Mountain Boys." We actually made the Armed Forces Network. So we were played all over the world on the military's cable television station. They have a good shot of me picking "Dixie Breakdown!" Long live the banjo!

Thank you for the kind words. The banjo has kept me sane on two seperate deployments. I can't wait to get home and pick at a couple of festivals. Looks like I'll be home for Christmas!

Fantastic man! Exposing the Iraqis to the music is great.
