KYLE CREED    OLD BLUE CD-502
Banjo Lessons on Kyle’s Back Porch
Kyle Creed with Tom Mylet

Banjo Lessons on Kyle's Back PorchFrom his first recording in 1965 to his appearances at fiddle contests and festivals, Kyle Creed’s clean, concise banjo resonated among banjo players across the country and was quickly picked up by the younger players. Today his style can be widely heard on contest stages, in the fields behind, and on the CDs of the musicians who play in his style. He is one of the three major banjo players – along with Fred Cockerham and Tommy Jarrell – who were the old time roots of the Round Peak style.

After the release of that first LP, County Records 701, CLAWHAMMER BANJO, musicians sought him out to learn his style. One of these, Tom Mylet became a close friend of Kyle’s, so close that when Tom came by, they’d sit on Kyle’s back porch and, using Kyle’s recording machine, record these sessions. The second voice and banjo are Tom Mylet’s. The tracks here are those sessions transferred with minimal changes.
