Pat and Patrick Costello are creating frailing banjo and folk guitar workshops

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.

The Daily Frail
Patrick’s legendary video series returns! Five days a week Patrick will be posting a new episode on YouTube, and the tab for the workshop will be posted on our Patreon blog.

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.

Both projects will be freely available for everyone. You do not need to contribute to watch the videos or download tab files, but it sure would help.

We have other things on the drawing board. Once we have the production schedules of these initial projects under control, Patrick is planning a guitar workshop series as well as the release of his long-awaited banjo blues project!
