Sara Grey - Old Time Banjo
On Saturday - We will work on frailing, drop thumb and double thumb, and various other techniques that make up the old time style. If time allows, and if the group "surges ahead", we will incorporate these techniques into a tune!
On Sunday - if enough people are interested, we will work on co-ordinating the banjo and song. If, however, the majority of the group prefer to continue to just work on the banjo without adding on any songs, that's what we'll do.
What people have written about Sara . . .
"… clear singing done from the heart … my opinion is that her butterfly voice which expresses a lyric so well, needs only her banjo behind it to make a complete musical statement." . . . Roy Harris
"… Sara’s distinguished frailing style on the banjo showed just how this instrument should be played, stylishly enhancing her silky melodic vocals. … new Hampshire born Sara Grey, one of the warmest individuals you’re ever likely to meet … her relaxed smooth singing style was conveyed with effortless ease.". . . Maurice Hope, Hexham
