October 2011 Blog
Howdy friends and neighbors. Welcome to another addition of my Banjo Blog, or as I like to call it; letters from home, where I try to bring you up to date on my travels and adventures. I am in long neglect of my writing duties. I have been delayed by a terrible case of pneumonia and I went down fast and have been out of commission since the Fourth of July. This episode is what I now refer to as my Midlife Medical Makeover.
Thanks to a gallant effort by the medical community, I have recovered back to as good as I used to be, maybe even better, only time will tell. The recording of the Five Hundred Project is now complete and available online (exclusively @ www.banjobilly.net). There is still much to do, for the present I am working on the documentation of my sources for these tunes and the compilation of the text in book form, which will be available first on disc and then in hard copy. The second part of this project described here is not quite as demanding as the first part and I hope to have it ready by Summer 2012. I am currently back to work to fill out my fall schedule and hopefully will collect enough acorns to pack it in for the winter. Wish me luck cuz I’m probably gonna need some and remember; “Times with no money is never as bad as times with no music” Play on!
