Hi Steve, I'm a bit nearer to you than Rob, but still a longish way away , I'm on the Isle of Wight.    Was interested to read that you played for Morris. I am a member of the local Oyster Girls Ladies Morris team.  Might just bump into you at one of the Folk Festivals , don't yet know which ones we are doing this year though.   All the Best.  Sylvia.

Hi Steve,the oyster girls were at Upton last year. I am only a beginner at Banjo and have found this site very helpful. I have also had a few lessons with Rob over the internet, great stuff this new technology. Will look out for you at any Festivals I go to. I have heard Rochester mentioned for this coming year. All the best. Sylvia

Hi Steve,


I've only recently been made aware of Classic Banjo through meeting another member David Greenwood.

I've only been playing a relatively short while and have been learning bluegrass.

I'm looking to broaden my playing skills in to claw hammer and Classic styles and from what I've seen of the tutorials on this site so far I think I'm in the right place.

Hi Steve, have you thought about transposing/arranging A Ragtime Dance (Scott Joplin) for the banjo, I was listening to it the other day, now can't get the tune off of my mind!

I would personally like to thank Steve for all the work he has done on producing new arrangements for Classic Banjo and making them available for us all. Check out all his scores in the MUSIC LIBRARY.

Thank you to Steve for all the arrangements and contributions. I can't say how old he is as I can't count that high :-) HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Hi Steve

 I was surprised but delighted to receive your friend request. 

I'm a Church musician (drums, bass and ukulele) with an eclectic taste in music. My journey with the Ukulele has led me to discover the Great American song book, jug band music and Old Time songs. It is the last of these that introduced me to the delights of the banjo.

I'm learning clawhammer but would also like to develop a fingerstyle approach to playing the banjo and one that is not so reliant on the different tunings so prevalent in Old Time music, hence my interest in Classic Banjo.

I see that you teach and like the idea of the donations to charity. If there is such a thing, what would be the standard donation for a lesson. Perhaps you could send me some details.

Kind regards

A BIG THANK YOU to Steve for all you do on the website. Have a glass of "Home Brew" on me ;-)
