"The Early American Banjo Revival...has a ring to it. more times than not, I'm glad this music is in isolated areas. I like being part of something that is not the next big thing and not something that every kook has has their finger on. I like…"

"Yes. This is a live and interactive music. It may almost be a disservice to isolate it and listen closely the way we do...without moving. Sousa had great reservations about music become such ( with recorded music. ) But..it is the best we…"

"Well said Tim. So true. I think I have heard more offensive lyrics in today's music using some of the same distasteful language that we see here in this very music.  At times it seems as a culture we have not changed that much.…"

"Yes, and it is so valuable to look at it...especially to compare it to cycles of popular music today, studying what the masses like, and how the industry responds. Always a question...does much of this reflect...or create attitudes. Look at pop…"

"I agree..that's why I love getting turned onto these other music books and books on the music history here in America. As unfortunate as the whole slave period was, I don't think our musical heritage would have been what it is today…"

"I am glad you are playing and posting. Much of our discussions hinge on the importance of oral tradition and passing along music in this way. I think we need to increase our playing and sharing 10 fold .... this is not a vibrant music we hear alive…"

"Bob, Your work is the first I found worth looking at as I began my banjo journey a few years back.As a matter of fact, I sent you a message about it. I believe it was before you retired. Found it interesting that an english professor would be…"
