Hey folks! I don't get to post about very many clawhammer episodes, so I'm really happy to have caught up with the great Joe Newberry to discuss his banjo playing, songwriting, and much more. If you know Joe, you know that he always has great stories and words of wisdom. Give it a listen and let me know what you think!

The first 6 minutes was a little tiring! But then the interesting part began.

Joe’s an old friend. He’s always worth listening to—both his music and his thoughts.

Thanks! That was a fine interview. I had the pleasure of spending time with Joe in the American Airlines lounge at LAX. We eyed each other with our banjo cases and that started the conversation, checking out each other's instruments -- he had his 1996 Enoch -- and talking music among other topics. Joe is a great musician and a pleasure to spend time with. I've also heard him play two outstanding house concerts with Mike Compton in New York.

Thanks everyone for the (mostly) kind feedback ;)

I 100% echo all the comments re: Joe being not only one of the great banjoists & songwriters, but a great guy to know and chat with.
