Hi folks:
Good to be here! I'm a 5-string banjo picker from Edmonton, Canada who has a hankerin' to pick the blues ... actually, I don't have clue what I'm doing but it sure is fun ... I have a slightly different take on the 5-string banjo.

For your (I hope) enjoyment:

Looked on your site, heard a Scots accent. Brilliant, you have left they midgies behind and took up bloody mosquitos!

Welcome. Loved the 2nd half of the Summertime.

Hi maxx:

Actually the Scots accent is faked, I'm a Canadian ... although I consider myself to be Scots - it's where my dad and ancestors hale from. My plan is to retire from medicine and do the world some good by busking on Rose Street in Edinburgh.

... death to mosquitoes ... and midges as well ... and black flies too for that matter :D
