Ken Perlman, regular B.M.G. contributor

The BIB reported on 16 Oct. last that the latest record release by clawhammer banjo maestro Ken Perlman (USA), Frails & frolics: fiddle tunes from Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton, & elsewhere on clawhammer banjo, had been reviewed in B.M.G. magazine, which had also published a major interview with him by David Cotton.

B.M.G., published by Clifford Essex in London and the oldest fretted instrument magazine in the world, is now a quarterly. From autumn 2018, Ken is contributing to it a regular column on clawhammer banjo.

His teaching throughout the year includes the new East Tennessee Banjo Academy (14-20 July 2019); Ken will be one of the teachers of old-time banjo, while Greg Cahill of the Special Consensus (now on tour in Ireland) will be on the bluegrass banjo teaching staff. Much more news is on Ken's website, where Pat Kelleher's review of Frails & frolics on the BIB for 4 Mar. 2018 is quoted in the review section.
