Q

Hi Danny, when are you coming to the Bay Area?
You should come out and jam with Bill Evans at the Kensington Circus Pub!! Please let me know if you come to California would definitely come out and support!

i appreciate your reaching out to say something positive. i can't really invite you personally but the information isn't hidden, it'll be on an email blast going out before the tour, and you can also peek at my gig page etc. it's like the old days.

Hi Danny,

Have you ever wanted to reconcile all your different aspects and influences (bluegrass, rock, minimal/ambient, hip-hop) in a single project?

Would it be possible? Would it be desirable?

I know a man can like steak and cheesecake; doesn't mean he wants a steak cheesecake...

well, that's what i'm trying to do. right now i'm tryna do that by just standing there and playing the banjo into a mic so it's not overtly for the ADHD demographic so to speak, it takes a little focus maybe. good question.

well i don't have anything quite in the works at the moment i have played all over there. if you want you can watch my gig page. typically when i do a tour an email blast goes out, so if i get over there, you'll see it, you just have to kindly watch. like the old days.

What banjo did you use on Goodnight, Irene on The Willies album?
It’s a great sound.
