Wow…Gunnar! You were great…I just watched the banjo, fiddle and guitar appearances, barefoot and all…from the first video. Awesome…I see much music in your future! Are you still gonna speak to us here when you are famous????? lol…seriously good playing. I’d like to watch that whole video on the first post one of these days when I get enough time…I’ve never been to those types contests, but heard a lot about them and looks like a lot of fun.
I can’t wait to come back and watch the other videos you linked. Thanks so much for linking them and sharing your musical experiences with us. You’re so good on all the instruments.
It’s been fun seeing your progress over the years and then to see you enter every category and play so poised!! And to place! That’s awesome. Congrats and thanks for sharing this with us.
Angela, I just asked. I had Justin Branum (who is an amazing fiddler) and I had been chatting with him and his wife (who I’ve been a fan of for a while) and I just asked if he could back me up. He said sure, so I had a guitarist. I think some folks would work out a deal for if you win you pay your guitarist a portion of the winnings, but a lot of folks will play guitar for people for free too
