Jake Jeremy Glanville replied to Brett Lowe's discussion Tarrant Bailey Jnr Recordings on You Tube
"Thanks very much Brett, for the recordings!  They're of very high quality, and I really appreciate them.  I have one of Tarrant Bailey's banjos, or at least I think so as it has his name inside, and the date: 31/1/48. …"

"Hello Anthony, I'd love to take you up on your offer, but suspect Paeroa, New Zealand is a little too far off the motorway.  Do hope you find someone keen a little closer to home."

Brett Lowe replied to bud bennett's discussion Clifford Essex Music Company
"Hello Everyone, I picked up my tenor banjo about 15 minutes ago to play a tune and realised the head has split - probably because of all the hot weather we've had (and it is old).  I had a look online to try and order a calfskin head from…"

"Hello there Brett I have just come across your site and have been duly accepted into the Classic Banjo confraternity. I was moved to seek out anyone with any information about the Thompson banjo. I was given mine some 15 years ago by the widow of a…"

"Thank you Brett. I met Tarrant Bailey on several occasions and even got a few playing tips from him!  He was a master of both fingerstyle and plectrum style as we can hear in these recordings. I particularly like Twinkletoes and must have a go…"

Richard William Ineson replied to Brett Lowe's discussion BMG Festival 1949
"I've sent the film clip to Alan Middleton who was there at the time. He's 94 years old now but his mind is a sharp as a wire first string. I can remember a few of the faces but he will be able to name them all. He lives in Norfolk so we…"

" I added the videos to our player and ..... I love it.  Hey Tony, 1970s...  No bike thefts in the 1970s? By that time I had a 1965 Mini van love mobile, and nobody would have wanted to steal that either ! Thanks Brett."
