I have the pink ladies shirt and the gray T too and they are high quality shirts with nice lotus flower design

Cedar Mountain banjo

Carroll sent me this photo that he snapped a couple weekends ago at Mary & Lo Gordon's home. Yes, that is my Cedar Mountain banjo that I am playing at the party. I also played it in the banjo contest and in the band contest.

Cypress Creek/ long ago and far away

Brian Hill sent me this old promo photo of a bluegrass band we were in over 35 years ago.
Boy were we ever young then! By the way, that's my Gibson RB250 when it was new. I still play it today as a clawhammer banjo and it still sounds great.

2nd & 3rd in old time banjo contest

Here is a pix of Chip Arnold and me--still friends--after the old time banjo contest finals.
Joe Decosimo got first, I placed second, and Chip placed third. My blue ribbon is from the mountain dulcimer contest where I placed first.
The contest was well attended and the competition extremely well represented. I heard the other four finalist play--and wouldn't you know it--not a single one was having a bad day. They all sounded like first place to me.

New custom Lee banjo arrives

Boy is this ever a beauty and it sounds as good as it looks.
Just a beautiful tone. I played it for both sets at the Barberville Festival this weekend--it was hard to put it down!
