More On Stage Fright

If you read Just This Banjo, you already know that I tend to barrel ahead regardless of the situation, odds, legality, safety, sanity or anything else.

Like I said in the recent video discussing stage fright, I was always scared. I just never let it stop me.

Take a good look at the photo above. Notice that my stance is odd and my legs are blurry? Well, the picture was taken seconds before we went on stage for the very first time. I was so scared that my legs were shaking.

I was scared out of my mind. So was my dad. We did it anyway – because that is what folk singers, and Philadelphia Mummers, do.

It’s okay to be afraid. Just never let that stop you.
