"Ability to play the banjo soon places one in a social position to pick and choose from scores of social invitations. Everywhere, the banjoist is assured of a hearty welcome..."

from THE BANJO, a 1927 pamphlet published by Gibson, Inc.

Banjo Solos:

Many of us missed hearing the "Old Banjo Masters" of the old time music renaissance. Luckily, though, we have YouTube where we can hear newer players and sometimes, if they were captured on tape, some of the older players.  Below are just a few of my favorites but you could spend many a happy hour searching YouTube and creating your own digital banjo concert. Please click through to YouTube when you access the video so you can explore each channel. Thank you to all the video recorders who recorded and posted these banjo treasures to YouTube.
