I a in my 70's and my Grandfather left me his banjo when he passed. He knew I loved his music.I have fond memories of him playing for my sister and me. The skin needs replaced and I want it done correctly.Do you know where or who I could take it to in the Portland, Oregon area. By the way, Congrats on your Steve Martin award!
i don't live there, but i think if you went to artichoke music, they would have a pretty good picture of the answer. also, go and see a band with a banjo player in it and ask him directly. if there's a banjo player that lives in pdx, they would likely know exactly where to go. it's not a tough job at all, i've done hundreds myself, but the banjo will likely also need what's called a "set-up." find a bluegrass jam session, go and ask a couple banjo guys. there may be someone that does it informally that is really good. and thank you very much.
no real question, just wanted to say how much I loved your show at Liberty Fest. I was the guy in the straw hat that plays a Stelling.Danny Barnes responded on 07/06/2016 Next question
Stumbled across your blog today via a tweet. I read your manual about surviving as a musician and understanding whether being a musician was your calling. It was really inspiring so thank you! But I wanted to ask, how did you know that you wanted to be a musician and how do you manage what you want to do against what you are expected to do aka societal expectations? Again, thank you!Danny Barnes responded on 07/23/2016
