Did someone say Banjo? Episode 1

I've become banjo obsessed over the last year or so. Not really sure why. It's like the twang has the weight of so much history behind it - there is an inherent beauty and a sadness to the sound. Or there can be. And it seems to be having a heyday, being used in so many interesting ways and by so many interesting musicians.

And just put Deliverance right out of your mind.

Coolest bands to ever incorporate banjo have to be 16 Horsepower & Slim Cessna's Auto Club.

If you don't know them they're worth checking out.
