Updates: Roni Stoneman visit / Great banjos on the market

On 18 Mar. the BIB posted news of the complete schedule for the visit to Ireland by Roni Stoneman, First Lady of Banjo, two months from now, including the information: 'Roni and her husband Tom Connor will be accompanied on this trip by guitarist and singer Bill Biber.'

Tom now sends, with deep regret and disappointment, the news that Bill will be unable to come on the tour, as his mother is suffering from serious illness and will need his constant attention. This, however, will not affect the schedule or Roni's performances. Tom can be contacted by e-mail.
On 7 Mar. the BIB published details of two top-quality banjos which Silvio Ferretti of Red Wine has for sale. Silvio has now made MP3 recordings of both these banjos, together with an MP3 for comparison purposes of 'Goldie', his late '30s original flathead style-75. All were recorded through a Neumann TLM-103 straight into Silvio's Mac via an Alesis i02 digital interface and Adobe Soundbooth. E-mail the BIB editor if you want to hear them.
