Scott Heron making it look easy on the mandolin 🔥🔥He'll be at the 50's tribute Saturday playing as Green Heron. This is from the Will Hatch & Co. performance on WKXL 103.9 FM last week. Full video of Oh Girl is on willhatchmusic.com/video
I need to practice. But hey, there's nothing like nervously chatting and sipping whiskey backstage, am I right? That's half the fun. SATURDAY FOLKS. Years from now you'll look back and say, I wish I went to one of those tribute shows at NEC, heard they were a lot of fun...

I finally found it, you guys - the most disgusting place on planet earth, and located right in the heart of beautiful San Luis Obispo. It's a place where people come from all over the world just to stick their chewed up wads of gum on the wall. I give you BUBBLEGUM ALLEY. #sanluisobispo#bubblegumalley#oldjoeclark#dropthumbsnotbombs

This weeks #banjototw is by request of my 3 year old who last night told me to play “Shove the Pig’s Foot (A Little Further in the Fire).” Who could say no to that! Side note: can’t tell you how proud I am that he makes such requests! Anyway, start shoving @jdwilkes @dustyleeelmer @d.cassells @squirrelbanjo @cumberland_banjos @cwdeanbanjos @colorado_clawhammer @seedersinstruments and all the rest of y’all. #banjo#clawhammerbanjo#dropthumbsnotbombs#oldtimeisagoodtime#traditionalmusic#brooksbanjos
This is what the third song on my debut LP sounds like. It's about how Hank Williams died in the back of a Cadillac. Eric Ober makes it pretty on the piano/organ. Check it out at the link in my bio or a bunch of other places!
Finally took a stab at learning one of the million versions of Cumberland Gap, one of my favourite ditties on banjo. Still pretty simplified & freshhhhh and in need of some finesse, but here ya go! I want to learn more covers... old-timey or otherwise, so hit me up with some ideas & suggestions! 🤙#dropthumbsnotbombs
