Tomorrow our little town will start to get inundated with banjo players. by friday there should be about five hundred of them here, I'm secretary of the committee so I'm just crossing all the T's and dotting all the last minute i"s at the moment. Bit excited bit nervous. I'm working at the local shop during the days and the local pub at night and getting 20 minutes off to do a quick set at the concert saturday night. I have a bluegrass band staying in my backyard and the afterparty breakfast is at my place monday morning. I'll post some pics on tuesday if i've surfaced by then. God i love music, even played on banjos

Wow you sound very, very busy!
Hope all goes well Michelle.
I love live bluegrass and banjo music and would love to be there.
Surely there aren't that many banjo players in Oz?

Since they stopped letting us using 1080 on them they've been breeding like rabbits!

Just kidding! I know they say that 'perfect pitch' is tossing an accordian into a skip..........................................and getting it to land on a banjo, but banjo players are OK.

Someone has to take the flack off the harp player!

Have you tried Googling on "Canonical list of banjo jokes" ?

And how's Dubya going to stop International Tourism if he can't control banjo players in his own country?

I know the feeling, I've often been driven to drink by my banjos. :wha: Sounds as though you had a real good time. 8)
