Someone needs to take the Dr's prescription pad from him. I think Gobbels would appreciate this bold rewriting of history. Its sweep is asphyxiating

I'm invited to play at Moscow's Banjofest next month. I decided to do a clawhammer banjo set, as nobody much is playing that style over here. I'm recording backing tracks so I can play the tunes with a virtual band, and this mix of this old traditional…
