"This is dreadful news. Dave was a lovely guy and a guru on zither banjo. He was the judge when I won the Keeler memorial trophy for fingerstyle banjo a few years ago. Poor Dave."

Syncopatin' Shuffle - A BBC Radio documentary about the banjo...

They're Beginning To Notice Me!

Here's a thing. Me playing the old music hall song "They're Beginning To Notice Me" as sung by George Robey.It's got a great story and the last verse is simultaneously absolutely filthy and also gloriously surreal pre Python nonsense.I got it from Sheards 7th Banjo Album in the archive here.I was interested to hear how they would have arranged a music hall tune back in the day. And now I know!https://youtu.be/VJHGkUQLMsSee More

A Joe Morley Pilgrimage

I took advantage of a trip to a client in South London today to pay a visit to Joe Morley's grave.

The accompanying text is probably of limited interest to you specialist expert types here but thought I'd share it anyway!…
