Banjos Plus Books Equals Mini Music Fest!

Do you love music? I have a real treat for you today! I have two young friends who are part of a banjo trio with their father called the Chiodi Trio.

I recently had the chance to interview them and talk about books, music, and how they got started.  At the end of the video we get to enjoy a mini music fest!

Check out my interview below:

 

Aren’t they great? I know what you’re thinking: banjos are supposed to be Bluegrass type music, right? Well the fact that they play 20’s jazz is EXACTLY why I love them. They are doing their own thing their own way; it’s unconventional!

You can follow the Chiodi Trio on FacebookTwitter, and their website.  These fellas are very busy and perform weekly down at Wholey’s on the Strip in Pittsburgh (my hometown!).

Have you read any of the books we chatted about? Do you play a musical instrument? Tell me what your special talent is in the comments.
