• Recommended Resources


    There is no required reading. Interested students can consult histories of the banjo (Banjo: An Illustrated History by Bob Carlin or The Banjo by Laurent Dubois). Most of the great players’ music can be found through the internet. Listening to five string banjoists Fred Van Eps, Uncle Dave Macon, Pete Seeger, Earl Scruggs, Bobby Thompson, Bill Keith and Béla Fleck should prove enjoyable and informative, as well as four string banjo players like Harry Reser and Cynthia Sayer, or six string banjo players Johnny St. Cyr and Bud Scott. The latter two played with Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton.
