Banjo Mike


A few people have asked about my banjo playing.  I have always loved the sound of a four string banjo, and I was lucky enough to acquire a good one some years ago.  I play mostly show tunes (Hello Dolly, etc.) and dixieland stuff ( Saints, Bill Bailey, etc.)   The banjo is great, a 1932 Vega, unfortunately, I am not, and at my age I won't get to be a lot better.   It is a difficult instrument to play well and I'm thinking of perhaps selling it.  I suggested to three of my closest friends that we should get a bagpipe, an accordion, and a musical saw, and form a rock group, but for some reason,  they don't think we could be a hit!  Anyway, here's a shot of a good banjo going to waste.     Mike
