Since 1997 my father and I have been creating web-based tutorials for frailing banjo, folk guitar and other musical instruments. We have introduced literally tens of thousands of people to the joy of homemade music.

We have produced over 600 videos with more than 4,656,870 views for YouTube and hundreds of podcast workshops. Patrick has written several books including, The How and the Tao of Old Time Banjo. A Book of Five Strings and Songs for Sunday. In keeping with his commitment to the spirit of folk music, Patrick makes his books freely available under Creative Commons licenses.

We have been doing this for a long time. We need to update our equipment. The Internet is changing and platforms like YouTube are not what they once were. Your contribution will help us continue to teach and share the joy of folk music with the world.

Patrick's Book In Progress
Patrick is known around the world for his groundbreaking books. The How and the Tao of Old Time Banjo, A Book of Five Strings, Songs For Sunday and many more.
Now Patrick is inviting patrons a unique glimpse into the creation of a new book.
Patrick's neurological difficulties make typing difficult, so he is writing the first draft of his new book by hand. In pencil on legal pads.
As the book is created Patrick will be posting scans of the original handwritten manuscript for patrons as the book comes to life. As the book goes through the first and second drafts, patrons will get to experience the creation of a unique book about the joy of homemade music.
When the book is completed patrons will get the completed ebook.

The Daily Frail
Patrick’s legendary video series returns! 

Sing the Banjo!
Patrick plays and sings folk songs while he plays old-time frailing banjo. This podcast is exclusive to our patrons and each episode comes with a lyric sheet with the chords so you can play and sing along.

The Patrick and Dear Old Dad Vidcast
Patrick and Dear Old Dad deconstruct your favorite folk songs. Each episode features in-depth conversation as well as music. There will be lots of history and some great jamming. Each episode will be on YouTube with lyric sheets posted on our Patreon blog.
