    Dr. Banjo Joins Steve Martin in the Recording Studio

    Pete Wernick, aka Dr. Banjo, informs us that he has recently been in the studio with friend and fellow banjo picker Steve Martin.

    Pete says, "Steve's composed a slew of good banjo tunes, in a wide variety of styles both 3-finger and clawhammer, and finally decided it was time to do a record. He called me in as part of the production team, led by John McEuen, with Tony Trischka helping out as well. I got to play on a couple of tunes, including one I co-wrote with Steve."

    Pete continues saying, "The musicians included Russ Barenberg, Matt Flinner, David Amram, and Brittany Haas, with the recording done at Bennett Studios in NJ, engineered by Tony Bennett's son Dae. No title or label or release date yet, but it will be a very interesting and tuneful record."
