Wanted - banjo lessons in the Derry area

Philippa Robinson in Derry city would be glad to know of anyone who could give three-finger style banjo lessons, either in or very near the city.

With 'Bluegrass on the Walls' due to take place this coming weekend (5-6 Aug.) and five Ulster bands taking part (though none of them from Derry itself), we hope someone knows of a banjo player who can help. Send an e-mail either to the BIB editor, or - even better - direct to Philippa.

Update 2 Aug.: Frank Galligan sends the sad news that funding for 'Bluegrass on the Walls' was withdrawn at short notice, and the event has consequently been cancelled. All bands scheduled to take part have been informed. The Maiden City Festival, of which 'Bluegrass on the Walls' traditionally forms a part, has itself been cut to three days (9-11 Aug.).
