Remembering Dwight Diller

Texas on Ugljan

Remembering Dwight Diller. This is a tune he showed me, sometime when we were driving around the East Coast listening to Pilgrim's Progress on the van tape player, talking life and death, cracking jokes, making music. Dwight's playing is somewhere in all of mine. - T.E.

A number of people have requested more fretless banjo, so here's another one, filmed on Ugljan island. I remember hearing Dwight Diller play this some years ago when we were playing together with some regularity.

Dwight Diller is considered to be one of the most prominent exponents of the clawhammer banjo tradition.
