I'm not sure people should bother with banjo if they're not gonna pick it.
But it hardly seems fair to criticize, when I was so taken with Billy King's earnest effort to make beauty and share it with family, friends, and strangers alike. I wanted to hug him like a mother and tell him to keep at it. But he's already got a mother. And I'm sure that's exactly what she does.
Billy King is at Crazy Wisdom Tea Room on Saturday, September 29.
