ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music on Banjos Dreaming was composed on an unusual instrument, the 5-string cello banjo. With its deep, mellow sound, the cello banjo transcends the banjo stereotype, taking it into a new dimension. Other musicians who play the cello banjo include Béla Fleck, Abigail Washburn and Tony Trischka. To learn more about the cello banjo, visit banjocrazy.com.

Listening to your music Paul, I am like a bird winging its way across a landscape where there is no time nor space. Your compositions are evocative and magical. I love how you can bring out the mellow richness of the cello banjo. Thank you for your creative inspirations.

I love this music
Paul, the music you are creating for the cello banjo is really unique, almost other-worldly. It is like no other banjo music I've heard before. Thank you for sharing this gift.
