Russ Carson and I have an idea about a YouTube series called “High Rollers” and I’d like your ideas on what could make it better. The concept is for Russ and me to load up the banjos in a small plane (I currently have access to a Beech Sundowner) and fly to various destinations to explore, interview folks, pick, and eat.
We might travel to a instrument builder and interview him/her on what they do. Or we may go see a collector, like out to Jim Mills’ place and play some of his prewar babies. I also thought about flying to local jams that folks have at restaurants, etc., or going to visit Gold Pick members.
Essentially I want to combine aviation with bluegrass and banjos…and food. What do y’all think? Any other ideas?
