ABOUT

I've been playing the 5-string banjo since 2005; I am self taught. I play the Scruggs 3-fingered style (main one) and also the old-style of "clawhammer". I began learning the tenor banjo for Irish traditional music; the four and five stringed banjos have two very different sounds. I am willing to sit-in for any of your banjo needs (recordings, gigs, projects, etc). If this interests you, please let me know by emailing me at alpierce2010 (at) {Y_a_H_o_O} (dot) { C_o_M}.
