clear photos of the missing banjo

About Japan concert

Hi Carl !

Yes touring was so interessting, we don't like big towns, we prefer to go to visit country and traditionals spots, Japan is about 60% not occupied, it is deep "sugi" forests (sugi are Cryptomeria, a kind of little sequoia trees), and bamboos everywhere, and mountains in center of this country... we 've visited Japan many times since 1998, i am saling lutes and early instruments to many japanese lute teatchers.

Nashville Banjo Collector's Gathering...11/4 thru 11/6


I had a ball at the gathering. Got to visit with old friends meet new friends and see (and pick) a helluva lot of great banjos, teach, learn, yak (lots of that!) and generally eat-breathe-sleep collector banjo stuff for two days.

So much fun to hang out with Joel and Carl. Those guys went non-stop the entire time...every time I walked past their room, there was banjo music ringing thru the door. I'm amazed that hotel security didn't put 'em both in chains.…
