Jackie Cook commented on thereallyniceman's event 'Midlands and North UK Banjo Rally'
"I would love to attend a Classic Banjo rally. It's not going to happen here, though. Sounds like there is so much more going on in the UK than in the USA. Hope it is an excellent event for those who get to attend."

Yankee Kid (1909)....Charlotte Blake.
