Hello Marc. I have a French banjo friend. His name is Eric Stefanelli. Have you heard of him? Ray

Welcome, Marc. I really enjoy your music.

A most unusual piece Marc. What a wonderful variety of banjo tunes we are hearing. Congratulations.

LA MI LA MI LA,c'est ce qui est marqué sur la tombe d'un musicien qui était mort d'avoir trop mangé de pain de mie...dixit la mie l'a mis là...
J'ai pris contact avec tout ce petit monde, j'en connais déjà pas mal depuis un bail, les autres sont trés sympas.
Merci mon pote !

Hey, thanks! I like your version of the Morley too; I'll have to incorporate the octaves on the walkdown of the "D" section--sounds great. I'm doing my best to approximate William Ball's performance on that tune; have you heard it?

Marc, is mandolin-banjo from the same period as classic banjo? I thought it post-dated it. If so, can I use nylguts on a mandolin banjo? It sure would be great to get that rubbery sound.

My mandolin-banjo is a 1915 instrument, btw.

Hey Marc!

How are you? Is there any french composer for banjo related to that time (XIX century)? I was curious!

Just thought I would give my greetings. Thanks for sending the link to the
Banjoree photos. I hope you still get to play although Eric and Pat have left
your area.

Hi Marc - I could not help but note that you were aware my father (Tom Barriball) played a "Clifford Essex Regal" banjo. How did you get to know my father? We, the family, have over more recent years lost an awful lot of photos and history in relation to our Father and my Brother in Leicester & I are trying to regain some of what has been lost. Anything you can tell me would be very much appreciated

Tarry, I am probably better placed to help here as the photo appears on my web site : It is a fairly common photo of Tom during his service days.
