I never thought I would ever be able to see Dr. Chadbourne in person since I picked up the ‘Camper Van Chadbourne’ disc in the early nineties. I was psyched when this workshop was announced. I knew I couldn’t make the main performance tonight but this was a terrific consolation. I am confident that this was even better. He played and discussed his career, banjo history, and most importantly, his songs for a good ninety minutes to a very attentive crowd of a dozen in the most relaxed setting you could imagine. He was funny, personable and very informative. An extremely cool time.
