Banjo Lessons with Tim Weed
|"There's a group of musicians who have redefined the banjo. People like Bela Fleck, Tony Trischka, and Bill Keith... Tim Weed is one of those musicians."
|"Tim Weed takes the banjo further than most. He plays chromatic banjo extraordinarily well... I loooove his banjo playing!"
|"Milagros is a fascinating ... wonderful CD and I appreciate [Tim Weed's] talent."
|"Milagros is really great! It's spent a lot of time in my player since it arrived. I especially like Granada Vox."
