If you’re an old time banjo or fiddle lover like me, there’s only one answer to that question – Rockingham, of course. I think I may have shared this You Tube video at some point in the past but it’s such a wonderful performance I can’t resist sharing it again. This was at the faculty concert at Midwest Banjo Camp in 2014, and it was posted courtesy of MBC – a fabulous place to immerse yourself in this music. I was out there in the audience somewhere.
It’s Bruce Molsky on fiddle, Joe Newberry on clawhammer, Mike Compton on mandolin, and I believe it’s Tom T. Ball on bass. What a great group of musicians!
