The Beatles have been a major source of music around the world. and area naturally associated with their home town, the great city of Liverpool. So for many years now, Liverpool has held an annual Beatle festival. Bernie has played this event regularly. He knows, like many famous rock bands do, that the banjo was close to the Beatles hearts in the early days. Indeed, on one memorable 'boozy musical' night in the famous Blue Angel Club, Paul (Sir Paul) kindly gave Bernie his banjo. A great memory blast indeed. This story has been asked about at festivals, and the respected Readers Digest magazine covered the story in it's September edition. In answer to various requests you can read it here for yourselves... cheers keep on rocking, Bernie.
