Thread Name: Billy Faier on Banjo
Subject: RE: Billy Faier on Banjo
That is a unique and a fine website. Billy Faier took the banjo into numerous new directions with his "Art Of The 5-string Banjo" album for Riverside Records--circa 1950s. There was nothing called World Music when Billy did that album----but Mr. Faier did wonderful versions of several international and ethnic songs on it. That had never been done before!! ---

This site has a ton of music on it, so go there and enjoy. I have a photo I took of Billy Faier jamming with John Hammond Jr. at the Winnipeg Folk Festival in 1972.
See it and all of my other folk scene photos at
