Fall 2014 news from Ken Perlman

Thanks to clawhammer banjo maestro Ken Perlman (left), who toured Ireland early in 2013, for his latest quarterly newsletter. Much of the news can also be read on the front page of his website, which (like those for the Suwannee Banjo Camp and American Banjo Camp) has been thoroughly redesigned with facilities for online sales.

Ken and his longtime collaborator, master fiddler and fiddle scholar Alan Jabbour, are preparing a new joint CD with the working title You can't beat the classics. Also on the album is guitarist Jim Watson, who was a founding member of the Red Clay Ramblers and currently plays bass with Robin & Linda Williams. Ken writes:

The CD focuses on tunes that Alan collected way back and has played for years, but has never had a chance to record. If all goes according to plan, the project should be completed this fall and released by early 2015.
