GUEST,Anonny Mouse What's This Brit Banjo Thing all about? (53* d) RE: What's This Brit Banjo Thing all about? 27 Jan 06


I'm a big fan of 5-string banjos-bluegrass, frailing (or "clawhammer")-you name it. Anyone who says it aint a legit instrument is not listening. Pick up something by Bela Fleck and see/hear what he'll do with a fiver. Pete Seeger, Allison Brown, Eric Weissberg, Doug Dillard, Billy Faier...heck even ol' Earl Scruggs. Great stuff. Can't say I'm familiar with any great Brit banjoists...are they out there...and what do they play? Bluegrass? Folksy stuff? Old Timey? Just wonderin'
