Billy Faier, one of the legendary great banjo players died at 85. He was influential
to many banjo players and developed the conjunct melody style of playing before Bill Keith. Billy was a creative musician and I was proud to be on his album for Riverside, The Art of the Five String Banjo. He extended the range of the banjo in diverse musical songs and styles very much in the way that Sandy Bull did. He should be remembered as one of the great exponents of the five-string and his arrangements of songs were truly unique.
