A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
RIP, Mr. Lillywhite. I'll have to go dig out my recording! I haven't heard it in years.
Sorry to hear that Derek Lillywhite has passed. I have a copy of his album 'Banjo Reminiscences' which is great as it is all classic banjo (a rare thing) - I particularly enjoy his dramatic rendition of Dance Morisco, a tune from the Frank Bradbury book.
I loved his tender approach to our music. He was a great restrained player, bringing out the nuances of a song in a softly, tenderly manner. I am saddened by his passing but his legacy will survive him. I have his album on vinyl and consider it one of my treasured albums. May your banjo ring eternally.
