International banjo player Sean Moyses has dubbed himself a “Wisbech export item” after returning from Japan.
The talented player travelled the country, doing two televised shows and six concerts as well as recording with top banjo player Ken Aoki for his upcoming album.
Sean started in Sakura City, playing a concert in the Town Hall lobby that was televised and shown twice a day for five days. He played for graduates in Narita before moving onto Tokyo.
Sean played at the ‘Back in Town’ club and then headlined the first Tokyo Banjo Festival. He was given the star treatment in Iida and played to a sold-out theatre.
He was then invited to play for Harley Davidson Motorcycles (Japan), who wanted to link together American banjo with American motorbikes. Sean said that being surrounded by so much chrome was “great”!
Sean is now back home after his whirlwind visit in the Land of the Rising Sun and said he was invited to return, making him a “Wisbech export”.
