After years of wanting to make a short film about him, I finally talked my father into shooting this with me. Here's a small look into the man that gave me my passion for the banjo, and taking your time to pursue your finest work possible no matter what you're doing. This is my father's story.
All the best and keep rollin, RC
A very fine piece of video done by a very fine banjo player about very fine and extraordinary craftsman. Thank you, Russ Carson.
A heart-warming and interesting life story. Good job, Russell! 1974 is when I learned banjo, too.
Terrifically made video, terrific content! Thanks.
Wonderful. This little film is a pure pleasure to watch. Virtually everything connected with banjo building, Glenn is a master of. Not to mention that he's an exceptional musician as well. I think a good player brings an extra sense to the build that translates into playability of the instruments they build.
And Russ Carson is a perfect example of how that magic can pass down to the next generation. I'm sure you guys are justifiably proud of each other. And the world of music is way better off because of it.
Thanks to Russ for making the film and sharing it with us.
An absolutely wonderful story and video.
I can certainly relate to the lack of information in what Glenn refers to as the "pre internet" age. It's a tough thing to explain to those who weren't there.
I also appreciate Glenn's stressing the importance of drawing.
He does such beautiful work, you did great on the video. Both talented gents!
Good story, well told. Boy, the work is beautiful! And the attitude and perseverance equally so!
