When you want genuine music – music that will come right home to you like a bad quarter, suffuse your system like strychnine whiskey, go right through you like Brandreth’s pills, ramify your whole constitution like the measles, and break out on your hide like the pinfeather pimples on a picked goose – when you want all this, just smash your piano, and invoke the glory-beaming banjo!
—- Mark Twain
They think the banjo can only be happy, but that’s not true.
My favorite “Banjo player” is Abigail Washburn…… And Yours?
My favorite? Living… probably Béla Fleck. All time, Earl Scruggs. Of course, there’s always her – https://billchance.org/2012/11/07/mojo-nola/
