Monday's banjo

This is a Ramsey Woody. Here I am with a Florida tourist. I'm a third generation Floridian and grew up on Palm Bay Point which is a small peninsula in the Indian River in Brevard County. Posted by Picasa

Sunshine State Acoustic Music Camp

Here is a photo of Tommy Bledsoe, Ernie Williams and myself hosting a banjo class.
This year--Ernie and I will be teaming up at the Sunshine State Acoustic Music Camp in St. Petersburg to teach old time banjo. We've taught together before and have had a great time and want to give everyone more attention with two instructors. It's the second weekend in October--here's the web site for more information.
Hope to see you there--it's going to be fun!
