HANS ROLIRAD, born in 1945, plays acoustic and electric guitars, dobro, mandolin, autoharp and harmonica with HIGH NOON. During his long musical career he has played Beat, Dance, Folk, Skiffle, and early Rock'n Roll. But traditional country music has always been the quiet passion which he can finally express with HIGH NOON. And a litte early Rock'n Roll is still around.
"I find it simply exciting to hear my Martin D-28 blending together with Jeff's banjo into a traditional oldtime, country sound."
I'm 46 and moving forward, so I'd like to think. Didn't get into banjo music until a few years ago.
I left university life (used to be a philosophy professor in USA) to experience a more exotic life in a faraway land. Wound up in Germany, which is neither exotic nor so far away. But here I am. Playing the banjo.
My musical partner these days is Hans Rolirad, who does an admirable job at playing anything with strings.
