Dan Gellert and Reed Martin at the Midwest Banjo Camp, June, 2005. Dan is playing his replica of Reed Martin's minstrel banjo. Reed is playing the original.
So Dan ended up with the banjo. I delivered
it to him at Banjo Camp
North and he paid me exactly what I paid you. He was supposed to send
you back the can opener tailpiece. If you have not received it, give
him a call to remind him..... Dan also had a 3-long strings & one short
string gourd banjo which he played at Midwest Banjo Camp. Both your
banjo and the gourd got a workout as Dan was really flying all weekend.
One workshop after another, plus concerts and demonstrations. Your name
was mentioned a lot and we tried to send you lots of banjo
