A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
The Reading Banjo Festival England 1991
Many styles from 25 Years ago...anyone spot the famous faces???
THIS is why I love the banjo, no matter what shape or size!
Let's all play "Name that CB Player" :-)
Yankee land ___ banjo oddity _______Soldier 's joy ______ darktown dandies _________bye bye blues and others
Yes Marc, those are some of the tunes but did you spot who the opening player was??
...our very own Richard Ineson as a child ;-)
Ah the boy Ineson as I first knew him.
That is of course the legendary John Willis with Sheamus, I never knew they ventured that far south! John, from the People's Republic of South Yorkshire, is still a great supporter of the Clowne Rallies (note change of date); builder of canoes and banjos and distiller of fine liquor. Sheamus came to stay at my house one summer ...he's big lad and takes some feeding!
Now I'm a bit confused. I don't see one opening player. I see 2. And now these 2 have been identified with 3 names. John, Sheamus, and Richard. Who is who please?
Well, I can help a little bit - I don't know who starts it off but 0.27-0.54 is Richard on the left the Doctor whose name escapes me on the right. Glimpse of Pat Doyle @ 1.24 could be Mike Redman in the background. John Willis and Sheamus are @1.48 - 2.00 (Sheamus is doing the dancing). After that there's a lot of plectrum, possibly Julian Vincent with full beard behind the tenor player.
