Bill Whelan, clawhammer-banjo player in Dublin's highly regarded Rough Deal String Band will be playing at the 9th Annual San Francisco Bluegrass and Old-Time Festival (SFBOTF) on 1-9 February 2008.
A six-page interview with Bill by R. D. Lunceford appears in the October 2007 issue of Banjo Newsletter. Among many other things, Bill speaks highly of his banjo made by Johannes Bonefaas, originally from the Netherlands and now living in Denmark.
