Banjo Billy Matthews doing what comes natural

Why yes, he does play banjo. Makes it look smooth and easy.

This is from the "Listen up Illinois" broadcast. I am leaving the discussion in for your information and edification.

Billy Matthews is the real deal. I HAVE to find a way to get him back to our area in Kansas City again.

I had noticed that I tend to post fiddlers a great deal and have been neglecting clawhammer banjo, another of my favorite instuments.
I far prefer clawhammer banjo to the three finger roll bluegrass style. I am just weary of the TOO LOUD bluegrass banjo work in bluegrass.
I also really enjoy clawhammer with no finger picks for that mellower tone.

I have great doubts about my ability to pick up the fiddle but I think I stand a chance with clawhammer banjo. I nearly bought a banjo from Jim Curley the year before his shop closed and wish I had.
