Welcome

I am thrilled to tell you that my new banjo recording "My Lucky Stars" Is now available! This recording project is a collection of mostly original instrumental music composed on the 5 string banjo over the last ten years. As a bonus I have also included two fiddle tunes in the mix– one composed by Jim Childress and a traditional tune. There are some solo, duo pieces with Chris Coole on guitar, and band selections with Chris Coole- guitar, John Showman- fiddle, Hannah Shira Naiman -fiddle, and Max Heineman on bass.

"He loves clawhammer banjo, it’s tone, the tunes, the lilt, and it shows.  He wants to share it. And he does, quietly, carefully, and as comfortably as an old shoe. This is a beautiful, thoughtful, glorious collection of tunes that we can get lost in precisely because Naiman does. Love it, love it, love it."   Glen Herbert , Penguin Eggs Magazine
