about

At the Mount Airy festival in the late 80's, we both remember a particular wee hours' session. An anonymous pilgrim from the far side of the campground heard something that caught his interest. Through the many intervening sessions in the darkness he followed his ears. Upon locating us he announced that he just had to see that..."That Banjo From Hell..."
"This work is often haunting in tone and can at times be a dark exploration. Specifically. in regards to the battle tunes, the images they cast are so vibrant that they make me want to see the film it should score. In all, the work is handled masterfully from beginning to end with little or no detail left unattended. This is a standout piece of work." - The Old-Time Herald Spring 2001
