Have you played in Europe much? Any plans to come play this side of the pond in the near future?
well i've gone over there from time to time, but i don't really know any promoters there. it would require someone being interested in my work and bringing me over. i can't hire myself so to speak.
First time I saw you live, I was not expecting to see you. I went to the Green Frog in Bellingham, WA to see "The Way Backs" and walked in on you playing your second song of the night (I think). I already had a couple of your albums, but did not know you were opening. You blew me away with a Thelonius Monk tune shortly after I got there, and I have been wondering ever since if you would do a jazz album. Monk on Banjo seems to fit in with all the electronic, wonderfully weird stuff that you do. I'd love to hear an eclectic album of your take on stuff like Monk, Ornette Coleman, Hancock, Brubeck (maybe turk), maybe throw in some good modern stuff too. Just a thought....
No matter what you do, just keep doing it. Love your stuff
do you have a favorite instrument to pair the banjo with? Like fiddle banjo combo's for example? Have you found you have a particular instrument you really like someone jam along on when you are playing banjo for the way the tone the instrument creates or playing style it suits contrasts or blends with banjo?Danny Barnes responded on 08/26/2013
