One night during the jam...this fellow popped by and told us where and when he started playing banjo. This is one of the reasons I love my job!
Another reason I love my job is seeing backstage. I love anything to do with performance! Setting up, the make up, the take down, the roadies, sound check, practice, rehearsal. (I love making a film because of all this too) Here in the hallway of the Old Town School Of Folk Music is a huge mural (which I adore!!!!!) by Chicago based artist Tony Fitzpatrick. It is a tryptich and one of the huge panels slides to open up behind the stage in the auditorium...this way a grand piano can be loaded onto the stage.
