Wonderful. Are you guys in a mirror or what?? hehe
OK, what is it about your touch that makes your playing sound so lyrical,...clear. How do you get inside the note? ........
My daughter lives in CA and a whole flock of young 'uns have just discovered the Drops because of her...... according to her. hehe Our whole family - now scattered all over love you guys. We grew up tripping over banjos and fiddles, my kids did too.
Love hearing you on that big Sweeney.

Ain't nuthin' about that I don't like! Having a great bones player is such a wonderful thing. Great work!

Nice tune Rhiannon and Hubby. Until last week I was home within easy striking distance of your performance tomorrow in Albany.  But this week I am away from home and sorry I will miss it again.

Really nice!  It's a simple tune on paper but it's really hard to get the rhythm to flow like that.

Great recording! Thanks for letting me try out the Sweeney model at the HaFe event. I liked it so much I ordered one of my own and have been a happier banjoist for it!
