"Not going to either of the Gettysburgs.  Not my speed.  I'll be at the Vicksburg LH and the Chickamauga LH next year, and will be at Perryville next month.  Very much looking forward to a return to Kentucky. "

"Eddie!  I was talking about you over the weekend.  Some of it was even positive.  Glad to see you're still playing.  Been a long, long, long time without seeing you at an event."

Ed as 1850s banjo player

"If you come to the Early Banjo Gathering in August, please do bring as many of your fine instruments as you can. They are wonderful. I've played several of Hartel's repros (I own one of his Ashborns), but have not had the chance to play…"

"Hi Greg - I commisioned Jim to make the Winan banjo after I saw it at the Katonah Museum of Art exhibit in 2004. The hardware is original 19th c. I hope we can make it out East again. Ed"

"Great banjos and photos Ed!!! You and your friends look great. The banjo you are holding in this photo is a Hartel reproduction of Bob Winans' 'no-name' banjo. Great banjo, great inlays! Would love to hear you guys play some time."
