For enthusiasts of early banjo
I was down at the Cape Fear museum today in Fayetteville playning in the Civil War encampment with my fiddler friend Norm Boggs. While I was there I actually ran into a guy from Burlington who plays Civil War era fiddle music. I just got home so I hadn't seen your posting. Yeah, I'd love to get together sometime. Norm and I will be playing at the Duke Homestead Historic Site in Durham 10am to 4pm the second Saturday of June, July, August, and September at the homestead building. I won't be able to do much before that, but please, if you can, come out to the Duke Homestead and bring your banjo. Bob Flesher is actually the guy who taught me to play minstrel banjo style. He's a great player and a great instrument maker. Rob Morrison
We'll actually be playing at exactly the same time over at The Bennett Place in Durham! Let me know of your next one and I'll come see it. What is your phone number?
Thank you George, Susan, Greg and others for such a great time at the AEBC. My clunker and I got back across the the mountains somehow and my daughter had her baby today, a little boy. I finally got to meet Mark Weems today at the Festival for the Eno in Durham, NC where Mark and his wife Julee entertained the crowd with a fine combination of Irish, Appalachian, and original music. Mark told me he is arranging a Joe Ayers weekend at Bennett Place Historical Site in Durham on August 13. Joe will meet and greet the public from 10AM until 4PM. In the evening Joe will give a concert in the Bennett Place Theater for $15 from 7-9PM. The next day, August 14, Joe will give a banjo workshop from 1-3 PM for a charge of $30. Like most of the rest of us, I've been a fan of Joe's for many years. If any of you are out this way this August, this will be a rare opportunity to get get to meet Joe Ayers and to see him in action. --Rob Morrison
