1. I’m downloading this stuff now and can’t wait to listen and learn. Thanks for giving us so much nourishing roots-music brain food, Eli!

    Shameless promotion: Folks who live north of Gotham might want to check out the Rhythm on the Ridge Festival. It’s this Saturday (6/13/09) near Schenectady, N.Y. My old-time duo, The Bentwood Rockers, will be on the bill with The Ramblin’ Jug Stompers and more than a dozen other bluegrass and misc/acoustic acts. Mandolin workshop and cheap admission, too.

    This is a treasure trove of information for any old time banjo player. Thanks so much for posting it.

    Oh, and I’m the guy that John mentions who sent him an email inquiring about George Landers’ playing style. ‘Bout jumped out of my seat when I heard that. 🙂
