A wonderful banjo duet on a Rodgers and Hammerstein classic from banjo ambassadors Bill and Babi Evans.

Peghead Nation instructor Bill Evans has been sharing the banjo love from his Alto, New Mexico home for much of 2020, with engaging workshops, fun performances, his annual California Banjo Extravaganza concert, and more. He’s brought great instruction and welcome entertainment to thousands of banjo players this year, and we’re grateful. In this video, Bill and Babi Evans play the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, “My Favorite Things.”

Of this performance, Bill says: “This was originally broadcast on Episode 13 of the Nell and Jim Show, produced by our good friends Nell Robinson and Jim Nunally. As we enter this most unusual of holiday seasons, we realize that our favorite things aren’t things at all – they are people and we are grateful for family, friends, and for the worldwide acoustic music and banjo community. We hope you enjoy this performance!”
