Recent Virginia Tech Graduate in the Blacksburg area (Go Hokies!). I play lots of Irish, Scottish, and Old-Time tunes. I currently play mandolin, anglo concertina, guitar, tenor banjo, and low-D whistle (my favorite is the banjo). If not evident by my list of banjo jokes on this profile description, I enjoy telling banjo and session-related jokes. These relatively harmless jokes seem to get Jeremy all butthurt, so I keep them all here where he can’t see them.
DISCLAIMER: Just because I like cracking banjo jokes does _not_ mean I dislike the banjo. Once a banjo player, always a banjo player.
DISCLAIMER: Just because I make banjo jokes at sessions (and they’re accepted there) does not mean that it’s okay to post them on the discussions page. Jeremy does not appreciate posting these in the forums, so they stay here, where nobody ever sees them ;) . I strongly recommend refraining from instrument bashing on the forums, cause, while it is appreciated by almost everybody, some people (COUGH COUGH JEREMY COUGH COUGH) get really butthurt for no reason because they can’t take a goddamn joke.
I’m a big fan of themachinefolksession.org; you can generate your own tunes there!
