We just heard from Banjo NewsLetter publisher Donald Nitchie with some details about the March 2006 issue of the magazine – the longest running banjo periodical of its kind.
This month we feature an interview with Nashville picker Charlie Cushman, by Mary E. Yeomans. Also featured is three-finger player Matt Flinner, who plays with the Drew Emmitt Band. Janet Davis writes about a classic back-up lick; Tab of the Month features a hot tune by Steve Lutke, Bob Carlin reviews the new banjo exhibit The Banjo: From Africa To America and Beyond, currently showing in Knoxville, Tennessee. Arnie Naiman reviews clawhammer player John Balch”s Hot Biscuit Jam CD, there’s a review of Turtle Hill’s Bluegrass Woody banjo, and Steve Harvey writes about his recent old-time release, Three Forks of Ivy.
