Texas State Banjo Championship

Rolf Sieker - Texas State
Banjo Champion 2001
by Eddie Collins




Rolf Sieker who moved from Berlin, Germany to Texas a little more than a year ago won the Texas State Banjo Championship 2001. He was pictured in the May 1998 issue of Banjo Newsletter after aquiring Bobby Thompson's famous Baldwin studio banjo. Rolf put that very special banjo to good use in winning that championship. The tunes he performed were "Pickaway", "Dixie Hoedown", "Sweet Georgia Brown" and "High Performance", - an original tune that he recorded on his tribute album to Bobby Thompson, Nashville Cat.




Shawn Spiars (3rd place), Rolf Sieker (1st place), Chris Hirsch (2nd place)
