Eno - A Ragtime Episode - Rob Mackillop

"Yes, Rob would always be welcome back. I am sure that we all miss his encyclopaedic knowledge of music and his great videos.  Ragtime Episode is not a favourite of mine but the "Stefanelli" sure does sound good!"

Alan Ramsay replied to Mike Moss's discussion Classic Banjo demographics?
"Well, my route to classic banjo is fairly straightforward.  I had never even touched a mucial instrument until I was 33 (two years ago) when I picked up a cheap ukelele and started tinkling away.  I quite enjoyed it though quickly realised…"

Hi Alan,  Yes I am thinking of  getting a new banjo, it would be round about March time though.  The two that I have were only cheapies and don't give quite the sound that I would like.  Rob mentioned this morning that you were wanting to sell yours and  I have been, without success, trying to find the video where he played it.
