This week’s Musicians Tip from BluegrassCountry.org comes from banjo man Bill Emerson. Bill earned his reputation as a solid picker with Jimmy Martin and The Country Gentlemen, and then served as a musician in the US Navy Band, Country Current where he played banjo and led the group.
Bill shares his thoughts about stage presence in his brief (1 minute) audio presentation. Find it at BluegrassCountry.org, where you can listen to each of their Musicians Tips segments. A new segment is added each week, with bluegrass music professionals sharing their wisdom and experience.
Emerson has a new CD due out next month, Bill Emerson & The Sweet Dixie Band, which will feature Bill with his new group, and guest appearances from Paul Williams and Randy Waller.
