Sept. 2021 BNL to appear only online (UPDATE)

Thanks to Frank P. Coyne of Foxrock for the news that in consequence of the death of its business editor, Spencer Nitchie, Banjo News Letter (BNL) will appear only online this month. Donald Nitchie, editor-in-chief, announces that the September 2021 issue

... contains Noam Pikelny’s interview with Béla Fleck about his recent My bluegrass heart release, along with Chris Coole’s interview with Brad Kolodner, John Bullard’s interview with classical banjo master Claudio Parravicini, our interview with Czech 3-finger player Jaromír Jahoda, a profile of Nashville Banjo Co. builder Dave Dillard, and more. The issue is going to be a few days late... hopefully, September 3.

UPDATE 7 Sept.: Ar the end of last week it was announced that after the September issue the publication of BNL will be suspended. Full details are given in John Lawless's feature on Bluegrass Today. Note the word 'suspended'; it is hoped that BNL will continue if viable arrangements can be made.
