What an inspiration all these musicians have been for me since I've arrived. They've all taken me into the fold and accepted me. (This of course goes for Mary, too). The reception each time I pick a banjo break is unbelievable; people really like my banjo work down here. 40 years of playing and the appreciation level is very high in Tennessee. The level of musicianship around here is to die for. I couldn't have settled in a better region.
