I just discovered Eliza Mary Doyle on YouTube. I think she is getting a very nice clawhammer sound out of her banjo. The banjo seems to be (better seen on other video clips) an Iida flathead resonator banjo. This is one of the many nice clips (starts and ends with finger-picking, but clawhammer most of the time):

By the way, I just saw she also plays with "The Dead South" (same banjo often without the resonator).

Eliza Mary Doyle was featured in at least a couple years in the Banjo Babe Calenders & Cd . She had some really nice recordings too. Contact Erin English about them--she may still have a few of those CDs :)

Best Banjo Wishes,
