Genre: Jazz / Playing Style: 4-String (Tenor/Plectrum)

The Fern Dale Memorial Banjo Band -- on this occasion, eight plectrums and a tenor, plus trombone, bass, drums and two washboards -- at the Mouldy Figs' 30th anniversary bash in suburban Minneapolis, Minn., on Feb. 9, 2003. I arranged it, so to speak, and lead off with a bit of "Rhapsody in Blue" on my 1926 B&D Silver Bell #1 plectrum, then we carve up "Bye Bye Blues," "Alabama Jubilee,""Down Yonder" and "Waiting for the Robert E. Lee." There's a picture of the band in my album here.

Sooooooooooo good! It really showcases plectrum chord-melody style and makes me wonder why this music just wouldn't catch on again like it did in the 60's rebirth.
