Nora Brown, Old-time Banjo: “You Need To Connect”

  1. Interesting Interview, I’ve been waiting for it to be Posted as I recall your mentioning that you were going to do an Interview re: a Banjo Player a few weeks ago, it was worth waiting for, I truly like country music even though I am from birth a city girl.

  2. Hey Jack,
