Ricky Mier is a banjoist who hails from the San Francisco bay area. While attending Berklee College of Music on scholarship he won the Lowell Banjo and Fiddle Contest’s esteemed ‘Other Styles’ category. Ricky is versed in hard driving bluegrass music, Flecktones style fusion, open funk jams, classical, and now is dipping into Irish traditional music.
He uses a 2008 Gold Star GF-100 banjo with Keith D-Tuners and a nickel plated presto tailpiece. He prefers to use the stainless steel National NP2-SS fingerpicks for his picking because it decreases the amount of tarnish that develops on the picks.
