The Oldest Surviving Banjo Recording

Absolutely fascinating little Podcast. Richard Ineson knows a bit about this guy.We love the shock the family express on discovering their ancestor was in fact not a Spanish guitarist after all but but a banjo player!I've ordered the vinyl so I'm going to wait to have a really close listen, but What do we think of the style - is it stroke or guitar?See More

"They aren't too bad. They are a bit more of a fiddle than modern planetary tuners naturally, and switching between tunings is more time consuming but once it's in its very stable. It's not so awkward that I thought it was worth…"

A Joe Morley Pilgrimage

I took advantage of a trip to a client in South London today to pay a visit to Joe Morley's grave.
