Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Quick test to see if I fixed the audio issues from last time, I think it sounds a bit better now.

Well done!  Reluctantly, I ask....... your bio reads:

Donovan Murphy
  • 15, Male
  • Williamston, MI
  • United States
  • Played since March of 2015

Does this mean you are 15 years old?  Regardless, your previous photo seemed to indicate youth.

I'm curious, as perhaps others might be...... what drew you to this genre?  Re-enacting?  Other?

I definitely don't mean to imply anything negative, quite the contrary.....just interested in the background of someone so young picking up on this genre and playing it as though you've played it for years!  Make me think I'm embarrassingly misinterpreting your bio but, if not, please offer some background on your decade-and-a-half!

Sounds good, keep it up.

Very nicely played. Playing that well after only a few months is quite impressive. Keep at it, and post more tunes.

I am 15, it's a bit odd how I ended up here but basically I've played drums and stuff like that for several years and wanted an instrument to play some of the songs I heard and reenactments and stuff which accidentally lead to this considering I heard none of the songs. I do reenactments but I'm not so into the battles anymore because they just feel too fake. It's a bit longer of a story than that so many I'll change my little info box in a little while.

Ok.  Thanks.  I was sure I was misinterpreting.  I was still in high school when I first became interested in banjo but it seems like you compacted years of exploration and learning into a matter of months.  I salute you!
