I heard Bela live during the acoustic planet tour back in 03 along with Keller Williams and Yonder Mountain. Great stuff all around.

This vid is sick:

A well place banjo is a great thing, it can really be hauntingly beautiful. Bella Fleck is damned good, but give a listen to Loose Fur, a project with Jeff Tweedy and Jim O'Rourke. Masterful placement and instrumentation with a more contemporary twist.

There's more out there, but my snot addled brain can't really think of the names now....

I play the banjo, and I'm not afraid to let everybody in the world know about it.

Is Steve Martin in the house?

I think his banjo is attached to his hip these days...

How do you tell there was a banjo convention in town?

There are still residual pockets of ignorance here and there....

A friend of mine is a player, and I went with him to some kind of banjofest a couple of years ago. I loved the music, but the best part was that everybody had two or three banjo jokes:

What's the difference between a banjo and a(n)
Chain Saw: a chain saw has a dynamic range.
Macaw: one is loud and obnoxious, the other is a bird.
Harley Davidson : you can tune a Harley.
Onion: no one cries when you cut up a banjo.
Trampoline: you take your shoes off to jump on a trampoline.

How many banjo players does it take to screw in a light bulb? Five; one to screw it in and four to:
complain that it's electric.
lament about how much they miss the old one.
complain that Earl wouldn't have done it thataway.

How can you tell if the stage is level?
The banjo player drools out of both sides of his mouth.

A banjo player came home late one night and left his banjo in his car. When he got up the next morning, the rear window of his car was smashed, and someone had put another banjo inside.

Bill Monroe's had some first class pickers w/ him, I aint sure whether i like the mandolin or banjer better, heck i wish i could play every stringed instrument on a bluegrass stage.

Late in the evening about sundown high on the hill and above the town...
