Banjo NewsLetter 11/05

I just got a note from Donald Nitchie about the next issue of Banjo Newsletter.

In the November issue of the Banjo Newsletter we feature the new Smithsonian/Folkways release In Sacred Trust: The 1963 Fleming Brown Tapes by Hobart Smith, with an introduction by Dick Spottswood, and an interview with producer Stephen Wade. We also profile clawhammer player Abigail Washburn, and English 3-finger picker Leon Hunt. Reviews this month include the reissue of Earl Scruggs and the 5-String Banjo and’s instructional video Pickin’ 101. The issue also includes columns by Tony Trischka, Tom Adams, Ken Perlman, Casey Henry and Eddie Collins.

For every issue of Banjo Newsletter, Donald posts mp3 audio files online for the majority of the tabs found in each issue.
