Other musicians who play the cello banjo include Béla Fleck, Abigail Washburn and Tony Trischka. To learn more about the cello banjo, visit

Biddy Music that speaks to me

Listening to your music Paul, I am like a bird winging its way across a landscape where there is no time nor space. Your compositions are evocative and magical. I love how you can bring out the mellow richness of the cello banjo. Thank you for your creative inspirations.
Bob I love this music

Paul, the music you are creating for the cello banjo is really unique, almost other-worldly. It is like no other banjo music I’ve heard before. Thank you for sharing this gift.
