murray@mpce.mq.edu.au Bass Banjo! (14) RE: Bass Banjo! 26 Jun 01


On the video "Times Ain't Like they Used to be" (Yazoo 512) there is a film clip of the Duke Davis Banjo band with what he calls "the world's largest banjo. (He describes it's construction, and claims the strings are made of Kangaroo gut.

It is worth looking at. The film is c. 1925. He has his hair all slicked down and goes "poopoopedo" as he spins the banjo around while he plays it.
