Thread Name: PLEASE, defend BANJOS !!!
Subject: RE: PLEASE, defend BANJOS !!!
To be serious for a change, the banjo is not my cup of tea. However, the banjo playing on the first Steeleye Span album coutesy of Prior, Hart and Terry Woods, I reckon, is very nice indeed - I'm sure that the banjo afficionados would be happy to point out some more fine playing to ignorant folkies such as me. I understand banjo players getting sensitive about the derision hurled at them. It's kind of sad that we resort to being so jaundiced about our own loves and hates. There is beauty in music to be sought for, irrespective of instrument, artist or genre.
