Subject: Homer & The Barnstormers, who were they?
From: GUEST,Steve Latimer

A friend of mine gave me an old LP, "Bluegrass Banjos on Fire" by "Homer and The Barnstormers". It was released in '63 and apparently there is a lot of mystery surrounding it. There are no credits on the album. There has been a lot speculation as to who the players were, but I have not been able to come up with any firm answers.

Can anyone help? I'm especially curious as to who the banjo player was.   

Thanks in advance.

Bobby Thompson is one of the possibilities that I have heard. I think that he has denied it.

A good place to check this out is Bluegrass Unlimited published each month. Walt V Saunders has a regular column "Notes and Queries" that can answer most questions on bluegrass personnel. I have a feeling that he may have already covered this group.

I loaned my copy to a friend who was learning bluegrass banjo and never got it back. His name is Jim S.
