Lucas, good to see you here. I enjoyed our jam session at the last EBG. We need to do it again sometime.

I sure do remember you from Somerset! Greg must have ruined you for life when you two started jamming. Now you've sunk to new depths by getting involved in the early banjo community. Of course ... so have I!

Central PA is treating me great! I love swimmin' through all the history on my way to work in Gettysburg. You're doodlin' on the banjar now? Yikes! Twisted Tunes should be the name of a band.

Lucas - It was great hanging out with you at The Ferry. What a great weekend, huh? I looked in "Carry Me Back - The Domestic Slave Trade in American Life" (author: Steven Deyle) for the maps Greg mentioned. There is only one map in the book (p. 43), which shows the shifting geographic concentrations of slaves in 1790, 1820, 1840, and 1860. Cool map with various concentrations of dots where each dot = 200 slaves. It's taken from Lewis C. Gray "History of Agriculture in the United State to 1860." (Washington DC, 1933).

Hiya, Lucas! Great to hook up with you here! My banjo roots research work is going great. Last month of I gave my paper, The Banjar Pictured: Considering the Depiction of African American Early Gourd Banjo in ‘The Old Plantation’ , at the joint meeting of the American Musical Instrument Society (AMIS) and the International Committee of Musical Instrument Museums and Collections (CIMCIM) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NYC). Apparently, this was the first time that a banjo-themed paper had ever been given at a conference of either of these two leading organological organizations. Greg helped me greatly in preparing it, even whipping up a PowerPoint slide show for me at literally the very last minute! ;-) Go Team Banjo Roots! ;-)

HI Lucas,

It was good to see you at the Gathering last weekend.  I look forward to further communications on this great musical style.

Thanks Lucas. It's always nice to get some encouraging feedback on my work. I was driving back to Massachusetts and my thoughts were riddled with banjo questions! I am going to be consumed with construction thoughts for the next six months until I get a few more of them built! Looking forward to the next great banjo gathering (did I mention I am hosting one hear in Massachusetts in August?) My wife, who is looking over my shoulder, wants to know if you know Eustace Conway in Boon, NC. :-)
