Dan is a banjo player and ethnomusicologist, a protegé of Professor Mick Moloney, a music writer for the Irish Echo and also picks his way through the oft murky maze of organising some of New York's most famous Irish music sessions!!

On this week's Fretboard Journal Podcast, we chat with musician, educator, and FJ contributor Tristan Scroggins.  Scroggins has had an eventful month: He won the IBMA 2021 Writer of the Year award for his music journalism and then, just a couple of weeks later, released a truly unique solo album, 'One-Ring Circus.' That album features Scroggins - best known for his mandolin playing - in the midst of a truly wild pandemic project, playing solo instrumental tunes on a vintage tenor (four-string) banjo. It's an amazing undertaking filled with great playing ... and a far cry from what you imagine when you think about "tenor banjo" music. We hear about the making of the record, his decision to release it on cassette (don't worry, it's also on all the streaming platforms), and the Paramount tenor he used for it.    This conversation also goes deep: Scroggins talks about his unusual upbringing, growing up on the road playing mandolin for his dad, banjo player and bandleader Jeff Scroggins. We hear about the pressures of bluegrass competitions, his move to Nashville, mental health, and his decision to stay busy (Scroggins has been steadily releasing some great mandolin instruction books), plus a lot more.   Look for pieces Scroggins penned on John Reischman and Bela Fleck in the Fretboard Journal's next two issues. You're going to love them.

Skaut a milovník hudebního stylu bluegrass Jaroslav Průcha má velmi úspěšnou firmu vyrábějící hudební nástroje. „Když na náš skautský tábor přijela jazzová kapela s čtyřstrunným banjem, mandolínou, kytarou a basou. A ten pronikavý úžasný zvuk banja, a vůbec ten kulatý tvar, to mne uchvátilo natolik, že ač jsem tehdy hrál na housle a kytaru, tak jsem si řekl, že tohle je ten nástroj, na který musím hrát,“ popisuje v pořadu Hovory.

In today's Daily Fix, the GTA trilogy remastered collection is one step closer to release, as evidenced by the Rockstar Launcher being updated with a bunch of references to the trilogy. Also, the code mentions 'unreal', which is likely related to previous reports that GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas were being ported to the Unreal Engine. Crazy thing is, Rockstar hasn't even announced these games yet. However, they have been taking down HD mods for those games recently, which is probably because they're about to sell you their own HD remasters and obviously don't want you getting them for free with simple mods. Anyway, we'll probably hear something official from Rockstar very soon. The final Smash Bros. fighter has been revealed and it's none other than Kingdom Hearts' Sora. Congrats to all the KH fans out there, as this was a long time coming. Sora will fit in nicely with Samus, Banjo, Kazooie, Marth, and the whole gang, but hopefully he leaves all that confusing Kingdom Hearts lore behind him; don't want that clouding up the obviously deep and rich lore of Super Smash Bros. And finally, PS4 and Xbox One players will be entitled to a free next-gen upgrade of Battlefield 2042 if they buy the regular, basic-ass digital edition of the game. No need to buy any extra-expensive version, just the base game. HOWEVER, and this is very important, last-gen console players will need to buy the NEXT-GEN VERSION of the game, and you'll get the last-gen version for free. Just so there's no confusion, we'll say it again. If you plan on playing Battlefield 2042 on a Playstation 4 or Xbox One and you want the option to play it on next-gen if/when you get a new console, you need to buy the next-gen digital version of Battlefield 2042. That next-gen copy will come with the last-gen version. You get both.

On this episode of the Life in the Carolinas podcast, Carl sits down with librarian Suzanne Moore. The two met at a local farmer's market when Suzanne was playing the banjo (she refers to herself as an "amateur plucker") to promote the new Seed Library over at Wilkes County Public Library. Carl quickly realized that Suzanne was no "ordinary" librarian. Since childhood, Suzanne has had a deep passion for books, recalling having loaned her favorite reads to her friends regularly. She has always, by extension, had a love for people and community service, as well as an insatiable curiosity and openness to new ideas. So, it was no wonder that she chose the path that she did as an adult. Suzanne refers to the library as "the people's university." Not only is there no tuition, but there is also a level of freedom in navigating a library that is not found in adhering to a strict curriculum and paying for assigned textbooks. At the pandemic outbreak in early 2020, Suzanne touches on the pain she felt at temporarily shutting the library's doors. She remembers telling borrowers to "forget about the due dates" and the gradual steps they took to make their services available to the public once again, starting with curbside pickup to extending the library's Wi-Fi outdoors to offering virtual programs via Zoom. In many ways, the crisis paved the way for many opportunities and ideas that would not have emerged otherwise. For example, the local students, digital natives, have now been given access to the library through the gadgets they are intimately familiar with. What's more, the library has found more visitors since its doors were first closed. As Suzanne says, "We've seen an increase in library usage during the pandemic because folks that didn't have the opportunity to visit, maybe due to transportation barriers, were able to connect virtually." Carl and Suzanne go on to give their thoughts on the power of the written word—of the ability of an excellent book to develop a person's mental and emotional maturity, deepen one's appreciation of the humanities, and allow the past to come alive as a book serves as a window into the minds of great men and women.

We've had great fun over the years knocking head over our differing opinions on the virtue of playing polkas on a banjo. I'm not a fan, but Joanne finally explains to me how to do it properly!! We take a fond trip down memory lane in this interview, Joanne reminiscing about simpler times playing music as a child growing up in Co Limerick, the "craic" of the fleadhs, the mummers and the wren boys.

Béla Fleck is perhaps the most famous banjo player in the world. He's taken that instrument out of its folk and bluegrass traditions to play pretty much any kind of music: from jazz and pop to classical and reggae. But bluegrass has always been where he comes from — and he's returned to it for his new album, 'My Bluegrass Heart.' He's dedicated it to two musical heroes that died in the last year: Chick Corea and Tony Rice. Fleck joins Sam Briger to play his banjo, and talk about returning to his roots; his trip to Africa, the continent of the banjo's origin; and meeting his father for the first time in his 40s. Ken Tucker reviews, 'Dreaming of You,' a collection of songs by actor Karen Black, best known for 'Easy Rider' and 'Five Easy Pieces.' Black died in 2013.
