After a wander in the banjo wilderness, it is good to see that you found your way home. Welcome back Rob, from all of us, I am sure!

Hi Rob! Your videos on YT were one of the things which inspired me to take up Classic Banjo. I'm very glad to see that such an exceptional musician is among us once again.

Hi Rob , thank you for the Buckley, the Baur looks good too. But must get some more ink before I start downloading that and your Mel Bay Book.

Here in Minnesota we have four classic ban joists who would like to develop an ensemble similar to yours. We are searching for arrangements that would include a. piccolo part in addition. any information would be greatly appreciated.. a golfing friend of mine whose wife is an Edinburgh native enjoyed hearing your group and was surprised to hear that Scots were into that sort of thing.
