When I was growing up- one of our family favorites was Hee Haw. I don’t know if you’ve ever watched it, but it featured a lot of country music and my parents adored it. I did as a child, but as I got older, I came to loathe it. I mean after all- Rock n Roll came into the picture and the rest was history for me.

Imagine my surprise when my brother made the comment that he was looking at a banjo musicians friend because he thought he would like to learn how to play. If he had said the drums I wouldn’t have been surprised, or even if he’d said the trumpet, but a banjo? You could have knocked me over with a feather. Of course- I couldn’t help but think about Hee Haw and wonder if the thought crossed his mind as well. It’s definitely something that will be brought up during Christmas.
