It's like how Elizabeth Cotten played a normal guitar left-handed (look at 5:15):

Ha! That's awesome! New one for me. I've seen a few guitars played upside down and left handed....but never a banjo upside down and left handed.

I'm still trying to figure out how people are playing the banjo with just their left hand. 

I have to use both.

The late Bill Birchfield of the Roan Mountain Hill Toppers in Tennessee not only played upside down banjo, he did the same with guitar and fiddle. I have still shots of him but there are videos on you tube. He played banjo and guitar with his fretting hand above the Neck instead of below.
