Follow Up, Japanese Article on Dwight Diller


Today, 30 December 2014, thanks to Ms. Nora Wood, Assistant to Moira Marsh, Folklore Librarian, Indiana University’s Reference Services Department folklore specialist, I received scanned copies of the article in the Japanese language “Banjo Package.”

I can confirm that the entire text, as well as the photographs, reveal this article to be a Japanese language translation of Dick Kimmel’s interview published in the Banjo Newsletter in September 1975. 

That interview covered multiple banjo players: Dwight, Stu Cohen, Bob Flesher, Grandpa Jones, and Doug Unger.  (Dick Kimmel, “Thumpin’ For Clawhammer Pickers: Banjo Set Up,” Banjo Newsletter, Volume 2, Number 11 (September 1975), pages 4 – 6.)
