I surely wish I could have been there to hear the three of you Bob! Perhaps someone caught it on video, that I may enjoy after the fact. I didn't know a disc was in the works with Tyler and Howard. I'll surely purchase when it's available. Anticipation.....

Could someone post a link for the Boston Banjo Bash? (I realize it’s over but would like to read about it.). Nothing comes up in numerous web searches (??).
Thanks,

Django started on violin which was his main instrument before the fire.

2nding this! The existence of a 'Boston Banjo Bash' was news to me and there's seemingly absolutely zero information about it anywhere online... like, not even a one-line mention of it on a venue calendar.  Where was it held?  Is there an organization behind it?  A mailing list?  Secret Society? Very frustrating.

I was lucky to find out about the Boston Banjo Bash from Steve Caddick who I had contacted a few days earlier about banjo repair. I hadn’t met Steve before that but he told me about the BBB and suggested that I attend.  Glad I took his advice! I also looked online for information and couldn’t find any notice so I had to ask Steve again for information. The day was my baptism into the 4-string banjo world with the “preachers” being Steve Caddick, Bob Barta and Tyler Jackson. A good way to begin!

I am sure the BBB was advertised in AllFrets magazine. As far as I could find, or not find, nowhere else. I can’t remember the name of the sponsoring group but it is a group of Boston-area banjo folks who are also involved with another event at the same hotel/conference center in September.

Before then is the convention in Buffalo, NY in July.
