Welcome to Banjourneys

Hello Friends,

Welcome to my online music hut.  Take a look around, set a spell, give me a holler.  My Banjourney has led me to all sorts of interesting people an places, from Ohio and Illinois, West Virginia, Virginia, North and South Carolina, to Mars and back, to The Gambia and Senegal, and home to Gainesville, Florida.  Along the way I have picked a bunch of banjos, a few fiddles, and an akonting or two as well, and some stories to tell.  What about you?

Chuck Places Second in the Banjo Hangout Old-Time Modal Banjo Contest

Hi Friends,


Some of you may be familiar with the site “”.  BHO boasts the largest online community for banjo enthusiasts.  Earlier this year, the site began to host monthly online banjo contests.  Contestants were encouraged to enter Youtube videos.  The second clawhammer contest took place in November, with the theme of modal tunes.  65 videos were submitted by the deadline of October 31, from various locations in the U.S., Canada, and Europe (and possibly elsewhere).  For the next 15 days, BHO members were able to rate the various entries. 


I happy to report that my medley of “Boatin’ Up Sandy”, Cold Frosty Morning, and Betty Likens was rated second.  Here’s the link:
