We are very proud here at The Bluegrass Shack to have Justin as a student and a teacher. Justin has taken lessons from me for 8 years and is the most talented banjo student I have ever had. He has won the Illinois State Fair Junior Banjo Contest held in Springfield, IL for the past three years in a row. He is also blessed with the ability to teach, which is something that many good players lack. Justin and I were playing together last week and someone took this video of us, so I decided to post it for everyone to hear. Stay tuned to the blog, because what I really want you to hear Justin play is Jalapeno Flashback written by Winfield Banjo Contest Winner Jeff Scroggins. It's really incredible!
