This site is devoted to the ‘Classic Banjo' – from the 1850s to the early 20th century, the time of Scott Joplin, Ragtime and pre-Jazz eras, when the ‘elevated' banjo emerged from the old minstrel style, with a new technique (plucking in place of striking) and new innovations in construction.
Here you will find links to a growing community of online Classic Banjo enthusiasts, as well as sound files and videos of performances by Edinburgh-based musician, Rob MacKillop.
The site has also begun to explore the early 4-string Tenor and Plectrum banjos.
