Cedric Watson & The Mad Minstrels "John Hardy"

Cedric, glad to have you on the site. When I lived in Mobile I used to slip over your way with James Perry for some good ol' tunage. Good to have more gourd players on the site.

And there you are in person, we were all just admiring your video!

Hey welcome, love your playing and singing.  Great to have you here! 

I have a Menzies gourd, nothing quite like the gourd banjo...it's a very organic intimate instrument I think.
