Becky joined our group in the last few days and here is a Youtube link that was sent to me of her playing with Drew French.  I hope she doesn't mind me posting here, but it is great stuff!.

The Morley piece "Banjo Town" may well be recognised, by many, under a different name, but Political Correctness prevents me from using it. The original score is available in the MUSIC LIBRARY

I had never heard "Soliloquy" before -- what a great piece! I love the slow intro that gives way to a very lively solo, and then goes back to the original theme for the ending. Brilliant playing throughout. Also, notice how Drew makes a slight tuning adjustment during "Banjo Town" without interrupting his playing -- impressive!

Kind of you to post this.  Drew is a professional musician and my instructor.  His has a passion for music and all members of the banjo family, playing equally well on all of them.  I have been fortunate to study under his instruction, and as you can see he has provided some fine venues for me
 as stepping stones to improving my playing.  Regards, Becky

That is completely awesome. Well done!

I need to go to an ABF rally...they're just so far away.

B & D ?

the clear head is probably because he has a picture of  FvE  glued in the reso

Cute, I'll have to pass that one on to Drew.  He loves a good chuckle.  Drew favors the clear heads on these B&D Banjos, and is a real master of their set up.   I feel like I'm taking a master class every time  we sit down with banjos together.   The B&D can come across as very crass if it isn't set up well.  It can also produce a clear beautiful full tone if done right.  As you can see, I am clearly the student here.  Regards, Becky

unfortunately the video was taken
