I just got a package in the mail and inside I found a CD with a recording by a banjo player from Uzbekistan.  She saw a six string banjo hanging in a music store in Tashkent and she felt drawn by it.  She has her own style of playing that is a new sound.  She said she found this site, banjo hangout

My father banjo parts from the Christy banjo factory when the Platte River destroyed the factory in 1965, My friends and I had tried to make banjos in our garages. The Kingston Trio was making the banjo popular in those days. I lost my crooked banjo in 1991. For my birthday in 2006, my wife bought me a Fender banjo at the Kiing Music Store in Kankakee, IL. I've been practicing... playing scales and such, and I'm getting better at it.
