might have to go up to alaska for work luckily i have a banjo but will it be a pain in the ass to get strings/picks since most places don't ship there?
is their an existing country/folk scene in alaska? (would not be surprised I bet some pioneers brought their fiddles/banjos with them on their way to the alaska gold rush).
-any alaskan pickers?
Buy extra string, picks, etc...now, put them in the pocket of your banjo case, problem solved.
I don’t know? Juneau????
...since most places don't ship there?
Anchorage has USPS service, UPS, FedEx. Most every place ships here.
The only caveat is have to check what they might charge; read fine print of "free" shipping "might" only be lower 48.
There are a few stores that have banjo strings; but often limitied in selection.

There are folks that play fiddle/banjo... but most came up within the last 40 years or so. There is a folk music scene; as well bluegrass, OT and other. Obviously been more or less shut down. Would be having our annual Anchorage Folk Festival these next 2 weeks... some smaller component will be online.
Juneau is long long way from Anchorage, and has less music stores.
