Ryan Cavanaugh's outspoken views of how and what is played on the 5-string banjo, and his aversion to not compromise his instrument to play new genres, is occupied by few banjo players and musicians alike. Having honed his uber-untraditional chops under the wings of Jazz legends such as Bill Evans and John McLaughlin, Cavanaugh has meticulously developed his songwriting craft and his technical approach to the five-string banjo to be multifaceted, innovative, and entirely his own. Lauded by roots music authority No Depression, the ambitious and musically relentless Ryan Cavanaugh is, “the most versatile banjo player in the world whose name isn’t Fleck…He can play anything, and he’s proven he’s crafty enough to impress John-Oh-My-God-McLaughlin.” “One of the best technical players ever.” – Bela Fleck, Elmore Magazine, 2011 “Cavanaugh’s bluegrass credibility is undeniable but, while he’ll humbly tell you that he’s still got so much to learn, he’s already a remarkable jazz player.” - All About Jazz Magazine,2010
