Hi everyone, I live in metro Washington DC and host a long-running old-time jam Friday evenings either in my basement in Maryland or my sister's in Virgina so our players don't always have to deal with beltway traffic.

Mostly I play the Old-Time, Cape Breton, and Irish repertoire, but I'm up for anything -- one of the great things about our instrument is the extreme variety of repertoire to choose from.

I play regularly fro Contra Dances in the Open Band at Glen Echo's Spanish Ballroom.

I also play back up guitar and knock the banjo (open back).

Excited to be here!

Bill

Welcome Bill Babson: Good to have an experienced hand in the group. I live in Ottawa Canada so unfortunately I cannot hookup with either of your jams. I am learning to play mandolin after finding new homes for violins I tried to learn and I tend toward the darker sounds of mandola. Everything I want to buy is too expensive so I have gotten good at restoring and will venture into building. Good to have you with us.

Welcome @BillBabson.

 

My first job out of college was working on the Woodrow Wilson Bridge (the drawbridge part).  I enjoyed the two years I lived in NOVA.  Where I lived I could ride my bike into the district so spent many weekends there.  Great place, can't say I miss the traffic but the activity and atmosphere there is good.  Enjoy the forum and site.

Welcome to the forum Bill. Glad to see that you found your way over here. :)
Maybe we can see a video of you and your jam sessions some day. :)
Thanks for your introduction.
