Apart from Pink Floyd i can't really say that i have any favort bands or musicians because i listen to a lot of differet genres that all have different qualities. Its unfaire to compare Bluegrass and Clawhammer to Drum'n Bass, Hophop and Death Metal, Techno, reggae, clasical, jazz.
What concerns oldtime: Wade Ward, Tommy Jarrell, Fred Cockerham, Dwight Diller, Mike Seeger, Dan Gellert
My more modern favorit banjo players are: Johannes Bonefaars, Niels Bonefaars, Adam Hurt, John Balch.

I have been playing guitar on/off since I was a child, picked up the electric bass in highschool. I been playing i different rockbands primarely as a guitarist and vocalist and as the guy who wrote the songs. I also worked a great deal with electronic music (techno and hiphop).
In 2005 I borrowed a tenor-banjo from a friend and in 2006 I got my first 5-string banjo. I started out with 3-finger picking but when i discovered clawhammer, that was just like finding something i allways have been looking for. I love it...
I mainly play Clawhammer banjo but also Jaws harp, guitar and vocals in two oldtime bands. "Turf Rollers" and "Possum Whackers"
