Famous (or infamous) Banjo Pickers departed

Thursday, November 28, 2013

Not able to find a list of notable banjo pickers compiled that discusses their bios or demonstrate their music, I've compiled one and attached as a PDF file. This file has internal links that describe the pickers and their music. I've enjoyed compiling this list so I hope you do also. The music links are all YOUTUBE links, so you'll have to put up with or skip the ever present advertisements. This list is not complete, but covers Scruggs type pickers, Clawhammer pickers, and Tenor banjo pckers who are no longer with us, but are not, or should not be, forgotten. Please add comments for additional information that I may have missed, or other artists that should be included.
