Curtis is on of the greats. In addition to being a vintage instrument dealer and one of, if not the most highly regarded experts on Gibson pre war banjos, he has a solid background as a performer. He filled in for Earl when he was involved in an automobile accident in 1955, and was the banjo player for Danny Davis & The Nashville Brass for many years. His most recent involvement with a group was with The Natchez Express. Their CD, Headin' South is available from Curtis and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Check his web page on the links list.
