Danny Barnes at The Bartlett

Danny Barnes a renowned banjo player and songwriter performed recently at The Bartlett in Spokane, Washington. Barnes started his career in Austin Texas with the group The Bad Livers who were said to have opened the door for other groups playing old-time and bluegrass music. Having never seen Barnes before...his story-telling and masterful banjo playing was a real treat. He was accompanied by Jacob Navarro on guitar. A wonderful evening of music.

Sweet, the new album's nice as well. The banjo seems to be everywhere these days, thanks in large part to the persistence and magic of Barnes.
