I love the banjo!
This quirky instrument has prodigious potential to create music that defies its stereotypes.
I know I am not alone in my interest to hear the banjo played in non-traditional ways and creating fresh, unexpected music.
To that end, I have curated a Spotify playlist called Banjo Beyond Bluegrass. It features the banjo used in creative, unexpected, and non-traditional ways.
Enjoy, and share with everyone that appreciates the banjo.
