Banjoman_CO Brief Mudcat Biographies. (59* d) RE: Brief Mudcat Biographies. 20 Jun 99


Well, here goes. I was born in 1938. I was always interested in music. I learned clarinet and saxophone in greade school. By the time I was 14 I was playing sax in a club from 9pm-1am 6 nights a week. I continued learning woodwinds and majored in music in college. After college I played with a couple of big bands but that ended quickly. I started teaching band and choir in Oklahoma City. In the '60's I was introduced to folk music and the 5 string banjo. I also learned guitar and bass. I played on the "midwest folk circuit", playing coffee houses in various cities. I was with a couple of groups including 'The Renegades", did a duo, 'Fred and Morie' and then did a single for a number of years. When I was 34 I married Banjo Mamma (Barbara), had and raised a daughter and a son. And now I'm a grandpa. Banjo Mamma plays flute and is learning mountain dulcimer (me too). We now live in Southeastern Colorado. And believe it or not, I'm a minister. I still sing and play for whoever wants to hear. I particularly love the music of the Southeastern Mountain country. That's about it. It is a great life with many more years to enjoy.
