Hello Everyone. I am proud to announce another two CDs available on the Classic Banjo Shopping site. http://shop.classicbanjo.com. I have restored two CDs of Charles Mansell playing his favorite Emile Grimshaw solos. I particularly like these two because you can actually hear Mr. Mansell playing the second parts to these songs.

Hello Friends. After quite a bit of time, I am proud to announce a new podcast on my blog site. This offering is about Charlie Rogers who, some say, was second only to Vess Ossman in banjo playing. I hope you will listen to this podcast and the 3 songs that Charlie plays during the program.

Hi Hal - Many thanks for the "Auto-Biography of my father's". It really is an eye opener and a lot of information in it that I was totally unaware of. Can I ask you a couple of personal questions? How did you get to know my father? Clearly mainly through correspondence as you said in an earlier message that you had never actually met him. Did you correspond on a regular basis? Have you any other bits, such as sheet music or anything of that nature that he sent to you. I have been in touch with Ray Andrews but he reckons he doesn't have anything that is of any use. Anything you can offer would be really appreciated, kind regards, Tarry Barriball
