Pickin’ & Grinnin’

Last night marked the first time in nearly 4 years that I played music with Ty and Lance, both of whom were in the bang-tango Second String Bluegrass Band with me. We met up at Asheville’s Shindig On The Green, a weekly pickin’ party and bluegrass concert attended by a couple thousand people.

It took a few songs for me to dust off the cobwebs from my fingers, but I quickly found myself back into the flow of playing my Banjo. We were graced by the presence of Wayne Erbsen, old-time/bluegrass musician extraordinaire, who accompanied us with his award-winning fiddle playing. It was a great 3 hours, and made me want to start getting back into the banjo again.

We were asked to get onstage and perform for the crowd, but we all felt a little iffy about that, so we declined. Maybe next week 😉

For those of you who wish to check out some infamous Second String recordings, I have them posted at my free Mp3 page, Hober.tk.
